This was no picnic Yogi!

A hungry black bear  who is hungrier and more unbashful than Yogi Bear crashed a 2 year old’s birthday party in Connecticut and was filmed feasting on cupcakes while the party-goers fled inside.

Rauf and Laura Majidian said they were hosting a party for their son, Cyrus, outside their West Hartford home when a bear emerged from the woods and made himself the newest and most interesting guest at the party.

The parents and the other adults at the party were celebrating the party  but the bear was focused on the cupcakes

The bear was filmed feasting on cupcakes from the picnic table while the party attendees watched through a window somewhat amused and wondering who was going to the bear to shove off.

“A little scared, I’m a little freaked out, but everyone is safe,” Laura Majidian told UPI, adding that she and other adults there scooped up “armfuls of children” who were playing outside when the bear appeared and carried them indoors.

Rauf Majidian says that  the bear brushed off efforts to scare it off.

“Everyone was in the backyard partying,” he said. “we heard the first loud noise … we all turned round and there’s the bear”.

“All the grownups, we were screaming at the bear. He wasn’t fazed.”

The good news is the kids were all excited and thought the uninvited guest was the best part of the party. Of course, the bear was rude for not bringing a present, but he did bring the excitement and a little celebrity for 2 year old Cyrus!
