The Bears are Invading

From the East and North. I knew this would happen. Bears have been planning their move for decades. They plan to make us ride unicycles and wear silly hats.

From Kentucky:
WYMT-TV ( reports that bears roaming in Letcher County have invaded bee hives. Carl Church says a bear broke through a window to get into his building where he keeps bee hives. It's not the first time bears have ditched the garbage cans for something sweeter. 
Machaela Lee says bears have gotten to her bee trees as well as berry patches near her house. Lee says bears can slow down honey production, especially if they get to the queen bee. The beekeepers say they've seen multiple bears on their property, including a mom and two cubs.
And Alaska:
Wildlife officials in Alaska's capital suspect a black bear might have literally crashed a child's birthday party before he was shot and killed inside a different home. The bear had shimmied onto the roof of Alicia Bishop and Glenn Merrill's home and was walking across a skylight when the bottom fell out Saturday, the Juneau Empire reported ( ). "I heard this cracking," said Merrill, who was preparing for his son's first birthday party. " 
And the next thing you know, there's this bear that, I mean, literally, fell right from (the skylight)." He said he and the bear were about 3 feet apart and just stared at each other in disbelief. Merrill, 45, had his parents take his son, Jackson, upstairs, and he went into another room and shut the door. Bishop, 33, was standing in the kitchen behind a glass door and watched the bear help itself to some cupcakes intended for the child's birthday bash. 
"The bear walks over and puts its paws up on the table and starts licking his birthday cupcakes, and I'm just like, 'You've got to be kidding me,'" Bishop told the newspaper.
