Shocking moment a family finds THREE BEARS checking out its kitchen and eating from the trash – The Sun

THREE little black bears entered an Alaska home last week and wreaked havoc in the kitchen before catching their bearings and leaving the household otherwise virtually untouched.

A mother and her children returned to their Anchorage, Alaska home on July 23 only to find three bear cubs roaming in their kitchen and making snacks of anything edible in their pathway.

Shocking video captured by the mom shows the three cubs in the kitchen: one hovering on a kitchen counter over the sink and eating out of some tin, while two are on the floor near the back entrance.

The family says they left the backdoor open, allowing the cubs to roam inside. Frightened by the humans and confused at the sight of the glass door, the cubs scamper, attempting to exit through the glass door patio from how they entered.

With the bear on the kitchen countertop banging along utensils as it tries futilely to exit through the closed window, the two bears near the glass door manage to slide it open and scamper out. The bear over the kitchen sink follows them shortly thereafter.

The video becomes all the more stunning once the house owner walks outside– and sees a mother bear waiting for her three cubs to exit the house.

The mother black bear allegedly was also inside the house but fled through the front door. The cubs scramble over the wooden desk railing over to their mother, before the video shows the trio following their mother off into the backyard's overgrowth.

The woman taking the video had accidentally closed the backdoor, trapping the bears in the kitchen.

"At first, Mama Bear and three cubs came into our house through our open backdoor," said the child of the woman shooting the video. "My mom, coming from our backyard to the back porch, saw Mama Bear who was right in front of the door. Mama Bear saw my mom and immediately left our house, leaving her three babies behind being stuck with us inside."

Unfortunately, the woman shooting the video believed only the mother bear had been inside the home. "My mom thought there was only Mama Bear, so she came in through our back door. But as soon as she closed the door and went into the kitchen, she spotted three other black cubs digging out stuff from our trash cans and sink area."

Luckily, the videographer's child said, "Eventually, the cubs found a way to re-open our sliding door and reunite with their Mama Bear."

Alaska officials recommend residents place food and other bear attractants out of reach of bears. In case one comes into contact with a bear, the government advises the person to remain calm, stand their ground, and ready a deterrent.
