It wouldn't be a summer in Southceneral Alaska without a hilarious bear invasion story, so here it is: Young black bear invades East Anchorage Home.

According to KTVA, Bruce Talbot was at home when he "thought he heard his son come through the front door" only to encounter a need black bear in the place of his assumed child.

Talbot looked pleasantly amused in his TV interview, saying "he (the black bear) immediately woofed and ran upstairs, and unfortunately there's only one way up and down the stairs…"

The bear camped out for over an hour in an upstairs bedroom, before making a dramatic exit (See video).

Apparently "Wee Bear" found Goldilocks's (or whatever the male equivalent would be) bed "just right."
