Woman Makes Brownies, Black Bear Shows Up at Her Door

Posted on

Just call this recipe “Brownie Surprise!”

A woman in Avon, Connecticut, had a curious visitor at her door while she made brownies last Wednesday.

According to NBC Connecticut, who reported the story, the bear showed up in the morning on the baker’s deck as she was making the warm chocolate treats.

Photos show the bear putting its paws up on the sliding glass door, and peering inside the window to the kitchen. The animal spent about a half hour on the deck, she told the station, and it wasn’t the first time it had come to visit.

It’s unclear whether the bold bear smelled brownies or not, but neighbors seem a bit uneasy about the situation.

“Sometimes I let my dogs out in the back and do their thing,” Charlie Whitney told NBC. “But now that seemed pretty aggressive and I may have to rethink letting my dogs out unsupervised.”

The story said a neighbor helped the woman shoo off the animal.
