Bear Digs Through House Siding to Get His Honey

A black bear in Juneau, Alaska, didn't let a measly house keep him from getting at some honey. The male bear walked up the stairs of a porch at the home of Janet and Donald Kussart and tore through the siding and some insulation to get his treat, reports the Juneau Empire. A neighbor said the bear must have smelled a beehive in the wall of the house. Afterward, the bear ambled along a walkway and eventually darted into the forest. Last Saturday, a different bear fell through a skylight at the Juneau home of Alice Bishop and Glenn Merrill as they prepared for their son's first birthday party. That bear grabbed some cupcakes before leaving. (In terms of strange bear news, this one is tough to beat.)
