According to The Local, a mother and her three cubs ripped open a wall and forced their way into a cabin in Finnmark, in northeastern Norway, earlier this week – reportedly consuming more than 100 cans of beer along with a supply of marshmallows, honey and chocolate spread.
Cabin owner Even Borthen Nilsen told NRK. “The cabin has the stench of a right old piss up, trash, and bears.”
The bear, and three cubs, are reported to have forced their way into the cabin by ripping a wall off.
“The entire cabin was destroyed,” Nilsen told the local Finnmarken.no daily.
Nilsen told of how his mother and grandmother were the first to discover the carnage left by the beer-thirsty bears, when they arrived at the cabin in Jarfjord in Finnmarken only to find the place turned over.
“The beds and all kitchen appliances, stove, oven and cupboards and shelves were all smashed to pieces,” he said.
And furthermore the bears had finished off all the food and drink in the house – including all the marshmallows, chocolate spread, honey and over 100 cans of beer.
Nilsen explained that excrement on the outside of the cabin left him in no doubt that it was a family of bears which had taken over his cabin for night of feasting and drunken revelry.
“You can see footprints on the windows,” he said.

And yes, says Nilsen, the carousing marauders left calling cards: excrement outside the cabin and footprints on the windows.
In other trespassing bear news, Time reports that surveillance video from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in Estes Park, Colo., shows a black bear went in and out of the store multiple times late last month to snag such goodies as English toffee, caramel-dipped chocolate-chip cookies and milk chocolate “cookie bears”.
“The bear took the comestibles without breaking a thing in the store, ate the stolen goodies outside, and then returned to the shop for more,” says Time. ” All told, the well-behaved bear made seven trips in roughly 15 minutes,” and the thief “left for good after a passing car scared him away.”
