Alicia Bishop and Glenn Merrill of Juneau, Alaska, were celebrating their child’s first birthday Wednesday when a bear fell through the skylight of their living room!
“I was literally in the room, and I heard this cracking,” Merrill told the paper, describing the sound of the skylight’s plexiglass creaking under the bear. “And the next thing you know, there’s this bear that, I mean, literally, fell right from (the skylight). It was like one metre away from me.”
Merrill told the paper he fled into an adjoining room and closed the door behind him, and Bishop said the animal feasted on her infant son’s birthday cupcakes.
Bishop told the paper that she opened a door from the living room that led to the backyard and that the couple yelled at the animal until it casually walked out of their residence.
Wildlife officials estimate the bear was a juvenile male, weighing about 82 kilograms (180 pounds).
