Polar Bear Breaks Into Alaska Home

Polar bear
A polar bear (not pictured) broke into an 81-year-old woman's home in Kaktovik, Alaska.

An 81-year-old woman was in her Kaktovik, Alaska, home when a polar bear decided to join her. Betty Brower crawled to a radio and quietly called the local bear patrol for the village of 300 people. The bear was in her home’s arctic entryway, which is a narrow covered porch that serves as a barrier to the cold. Bear patrol member Ruby Kaleak arrived on the scene and said she saw one of the biggest polar bears she’s ever seen inside a doorway and feasting on a drum of seal oil. "I was shocked. It was humongous," Kaleak said. The bear fled after Kaleak arrived, and no one was injured. — Read it from the AP via People Pets
