A family of bears is suspected of having broken into a quaint, northern Norway cabin, chugging over a hundred cans of beer, and trashing the place like frat boys.
According to The Local, a mama bear apparently took her three cubs on a bender, breaking into a cabin by tearing down one of its walls. The bears then ravaged the cabin, eating everything they could find inside including marshmallows, chocolate, honey, and, of course, beer.
“They had a hell of a party in there,” cabin owner Even Borthen Nilsen said. “The cabin has the stench of a right old piss up, trash, and bears.” The bear family showed little regard for their surroundings, as the “entire cabin was destroyed,” according to its owner. “The beds and all kitchen appliances, stove, oven and cupboards and shelves were all smashed to pieces,” he said.
But that’s what happens when alcohol is involved. For example, another (presumably sober) bear broke into a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and left very little damaged in its quest to satisfy its throbbing sweet tooth. Notes Gawker, as if the video isn’t good enough on its own, the reporter’s whimsical account of the events is the real highlight.
“Jo could see the shape of its body and then noticed some round, black fuzzy ears on top of its head and realized the culprit was a black bear … Some time during the night, this young bear broke into the shop and made himself quite at home, enjoying lots and lots of chocolatey treats,” reports Kris Hazelton.
Here’s the video of the bear breaking into the candy store. Unfortunately, no video exists of the Norway bear family’s beer-fueled cabin binge.
