Video captured the moment a huge black bear entered a Connecticut bakery and chewed down a box of 60 cupcakes as employees watched in shock.

The hungry bear was caught on camera Wednesday helping himself to the box of delectable desserts waiting in the Taste by Spellbound garage.

Bakery owner Miriam Stephens said one of her employees entered the store “screaming bloody murder” and shouted, “There’s a bear in the garage!”

Footage captured the moment when the bear entered the garage and dragged out the box of cupcakes as employees repeatedly tried to shoo him away.

The bear eventually ran away after an employee drove his car back and honked. No one was injured in the incident.

The hungry bear was caught on camera Wednesday helping himself to the box of delectable desserts waiting in the Taste by Spellbound garage.

Stephens first posted about the bear on Wednesday to let customers know that their Avon location would have a delayed opening due to the incident.

“Never thought I would say this but a bear came into our bakery and attacked one of our ladies,” she wrote. “We’re safe, but the cupcakes aren’t.”

The Instagram post received more than 1,000 likes and dozens of comments.

In a follow-up post, Stephens shared “the real story” along with a photo of the cupcakes strewn on the sidewalk at the entrance to the garage.

“We have a loading garage in the back of our store in Avon for our Transit. Maureen loaded it with the last items before I left,” the post reads.

She was on the West Hartford side of the van, looked up and saw a bear staring at her from the South Windsor side. Suddenly we hear her scream murder and death and then yell ‘there’s a bear in the garage!” it continues.

The baker ran into the kitchen and moved one of the refrigerators in front of the door while the group tried to figure out what to do.

After calling 911, another worker drove back in her vehicle, which eventually drove the bear away.

“She finally got it out and Maureen ran to the garage to lock it up ASAP,” the post continued.

In all, Stephens said the bear destroyed 60 cupcakes and a coconut cake.

Stephens has since poked fun at the bear run-in by sharing the video of the bear’s snacking session, accompanied by the song “Hungry Eyes.”

The 35-second time-lapse video shows the bear initially entering the garage and taking a cupcake, with two workers looking at him in horror.

The next clip shows the animal dragging out the big box of cupcakes and chewing the sweet candies one by one.

The video ends with one of the employees driving her car and the bear fleeing into the forest area behind the bakery.

Dozens of customers have commented on the photos and videos shared by the bakery, expressing everything from relief that no one was hurt to delight.

His catchphrase review: “would have given it five stars but only gave three because the front door was not accessible, had to go through the back,” one person joked.

‘This is marketing gold Mariam! The bear was enchanted,” added another.

“A little bit of what I look like when you give me cupcakes. I’m glad everyone is safe!!’ one Facebook user wrote.

In fact, after posting the video on social media, the bakery announced a limited-edition cupcake with a Teddy Graham on it.

The shops have a delicious BEARY menu today! (My one and only bear joke I’m about to pull off),’ Stephens wrote on Friday.

There are about 1,200 bears in all of Connecticut, according to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

Sightings were reported in 158 of 169 towns and cities in 2022.

“The frequency and severity of human-bear interactions are increasing,” DEEP spokesman Paul Copleman said Friday.

The recent bear and bakery incident comes after a elderly woman was attacked while walking her dog through her Hartford neighborhood.

That woman suffered bite marks on her arms and legs during the attack in April.

In October, a 10-year-old boy was mauled by a bear in Morris, Connecticut and was rescued by his wheelchair-bound grandfather who threw metal at the animal.

The boy was playing in his grandparents’ backyard when the bear came in and chased after him, sticking his leg in his mouth.

The bear repeatedly tried to attack the boy again and even enter the house, but was chased away by a policeman who had arrived on the scene.

Shortly afterward, the bear was fatally shot by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection in a wooded area near the home.
