Bear gets its paws on bakery’s cupcakes in Avon
AVON, CT (WFSB) - A bear nearly disrupted the operations of a bakery.
Taste by Spellbound posted to social media that it was prepared to delay the opening of its South Windsor location Wednesday morning after an employee at its Avon location encountered a bear.
“Never thought I think I’d say this, be we had a bear come into our bakery and charge one of our ladies,” the business posted to Instagram. “We’re safe but the cupcakes aren’t.”
The bakery’s owner told Channel 3 that the employee was packing the cupcakes to bring them to South Windsor when the encounter happened.
The woman hid in a backroom and called 911.
Someone eventually honked a horn to scare the bear away.
It left and ran off into some nearby woods.
“I wanted to save the product but when the bear got close to me but when the bear got close, it was screaming and yelling and trying to make my self big all those things they tell you when you encounter a bear. He really wanted those cupcakes,” said Maureen Williams.
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental protection is setting up a trap using sweets to attract the bear. The hope is to capture the bear and relocate it.
