A bear who searched a couple’s kitchen after breaking into their cabin did not “damage” the house, but stole enough snacks for nine people.
Michelle Eberhart, from Indiana, decided to travel to Gatlinburg, Tennessee to spend in a rented cabin with her husband and their friends, but she received an unexpected guest when a black bear managed to break in.
Michelle showed up this morning and said that while the bear broke the lock to enter, he was a “gracious guest” who “scrambled nothing” – but left a “chocolate handprint” after looting their kitchen.
She said the animal ate enough snacks for nine people at once, including 5 pounds of chocolate, 2 pounds of gummy candies, two big bags of chips, beer, and diet coke.

“It broke the lock on the door,” said Michelle. “It broke the door frame, it was kind of a graceful guy, he didn’t tear anything.
“He didn’t scratch anything, he left a really chocolatey handprint. He left all the furniture untouched. ‘
When asked what the bear had stolen, she said, “Five pounds of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, two pounds of Sour Patch Kids.
“These were snacks for nine, two beers, two diet coke, two bags of chips, a large bowl of pretzels, it was surreal.”

Clearly upset, she says, “He’s behind the door, Michelle, trying to get out. He’s trying to open the door, he’s ransacked everything.
“There is one outside staring at each other. Michelle, he saw me, he looked straight at me. ‘
During the show, Michelle said it had been a “quiet morning” and that the pair were terrified after seeing the animal.

“Michelle had a direct view of the door,” she said. “And we were just talking, we hadn’t seen each other since October. We had other friends later, so it was a very quiet morning.
“She just had a horrible look on her face,” she pointed. I had no direct vision and panicked.
“I jumped over the couch and screamed it was ridiculous, I stamped and tried to chase it away.”
When the bears were gone, Michelle and her husband called the cabin owner who called the police were able to repair the doors and remove the bear
