WARNING: the smell of chocolate brownies attracts angry bears

Baking enthusiasts, be warned: the tantalising smell of baking brownies might attract a bear to your home.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, a resident living in Connecticut in the United States found out the hard way.

The resident called 911 after discovering a brown bear banging on her porch window, attempting to open the door and get its chocolate fix for the day. Sadly, while it was successful in opening the screen door, the glass door would not budge.

The resident told 911, “We have a bear attempting to get into a house and he’s not afraid of noise, screaming or yelling or pounding.”

This brown bear proving to be a true chocolate lover, eager to get its paws into that gooey goodness, he did not give up.

A determination that the residents neighbour managed to catch on camera.

They did note, that although the video and photos make the bear out to be very cute, it was actually quite angry about not being able to get to the brownies – something that many of us can identify with.

Once the bear realised that he could not get in the porch door, he systematically tried the other two, unfortunately with no luck. Points for trying, though!

And so with an empty stomach, the bear did leave, before 911 even arrived.

So rest assured that your chocolate addiction isn’t just a human thing, but a problem all creatures large and small struggle with.
