While I LOVE living in the country, love the wide open spaces, peace and quiet except for birdsong and babbling brooks, I will NEVER live where the wildlife is bigger than me and can enter my home uninvited!

The Juneau police shot the bear. That’ll show him for eating cupcakes.

They had too. They thought he had a remote control in his paw. Officer safety.

Always ask for photo ID. Especially if they ring the doorbell twice and have vacuum cleaner samples.

I hope the cupcakes weren’t chocolate, because chocolate is toxic to bears, and some animal rights fascist will find a lefty judge to prosecute the kid’s mom for animal cruelty.

I live on six acres in the woods. My cat always alerts me. Generally it’s dogs or foxes or deer, but recently a Florida brown bear looked like he’d take up residence. He went for my trash cans so I put a few 9mm rounds 15 feet behind him and he did lumber away. But he returned minutes later to steal a trash bag and run into the woods. It was the recyclables as I’ve moved the good stuff inside. He’s been back since as the cat puts her ears back and hides. Anything else gets hissed at and a few slaps on the window. But not Mr. Bear.

The icing wasn’t toxic, but the lead was.

I have many bears in the area I live. We have seen 7 or 8 with in a couple miles of the house this year.

Have had them in the yard and on the deck the dog normally runs them off. The rest have been known to leave with the application of a loud noise.

Play some Yoko Ono on speakers on the back of the house.

Then again, that might be cruelty to animals.

Through the skylight.

"... the bear may have been the same one that entered a nearby home later that day. It was shot by Juneau police."

Awwww - poor bear.

The bear thought the cupcakes were bear claws.

“The Juneau police shot the bear”

They were aiming at the family dog, but missed.

I hate bears who go to parties uninvited. They need to be invited.
