Black Bear Attracted to The Sweet Smell Of Brownies!

If your going to do any baking in “bear country” do not have the back screen open while the aroma of fresh baked goods permeates the forested area around your house.  You could be asking for an unexpected guest just wanting to “bite” into your dessert!  In fact if your not careful he just might want to bite into you as well!  A Connecticut woman got an unexpected and terrifying knock on her door last week while she was making brownies, as a bear came by to see what she was doing.

“My neighbor across the street just came over in a panic,” one of the resident’s neighbors said to a 911 dispatcher. “She’s a little old lady screaming that a bear got in her back porch and is slamming on her glass door.”

A slim pane of glass was all that came between the woman in her Avon home and the hungry bear drawn to the house by the delicious smell of fresh-baked brownies.

“The bear apparently moved the screen slider with his paw,” one neighbor told Inside Edition.

A second neighbor’s call to 911 showed how desperate the bear was for a taste of those brownies.

“We have a bear attempting to get into a house and he’s not afraid of noise, screaming, or yelling, or pounding,” the other neighbor said.

The 2-and-a-half-year-old bear, who had giant yellow tags hanging from his ears bearing his name — No. 16 — would not budge from the home, no matter how much noise the owner made.

Bear sightings in the area are reportedly common.
