Large black bear crashes Connecticut birthday party, chows down on cupcakes

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — A large black bear recently crashed a 2-year-old Connecticut boy’s birthday party and helped itself to some cupcakes.

Laura Durst, of West Hartford, says she was hosting a party for her son when the grizzly suddenly popped up behind a guest and sniffed her.

Durst says she panicked, while half of the adults at the party grabbed their children and took them into the garage.

Other guests jumped into their cars and honked their horns, but the bear remained unfazed.

The animal eventually made its way over to the dessert table and started snacking on cupcakes.

Durst says all of the partygoers ended up waiting out the bear’s visit in her house.
