A mother bear and her three cubs broke into a Norwegian cabin this week, reportedly drinking more than 100 beers, eating all the food and even knocking over a wall.
“They had a hell of a party in there,” owner Even Borthen Nilsen told The Local. “The entire cabin was destroyed.”
Nilsen says paw prints on the cabin windows and bear excrement outside the dwelling leave little doubt they were responsible. And besides, your average criminals don’t typically break down a wall when the front door will work just fine.
His mother and grandmother were first on the scene, finding the entire cabin ransacked, including a set of destroyed appliances.
“The beds and all kitchen appliances, stove, oven and cupboards and shelves were all smashed to pieces,” he said.
ABC News adds that along with the 100 beers, the family of bears also reportedly ate all of the food inside the cabin, which included chocolate spread, honey (of course) and marshmallows. You know, just the bear essentials.
And perhaps worst of all, Nilsen is worried that the family of bears might return for a follow-up engagement.
“The mother has taken her young there, thus there is no guarantee that it won’t happen to other cabins, or to our hut again,” he said.
There have been a number of recent, unexpected bear appearances. Earlier this week, a black bear walked into the lobby of a New Mexico resort. The incident was captured on the resort’s surveillance camera but the bear had backed out the same door before authorities arrived on the scene.
And back in April, a family of bears walked onto a Pennsylvania news weather set, rummaging around freely while the meteorologist hid away in a side room, continuing the broadcast.
