Police have killed a bear that crashed the birthday party of a little boy and ate all his cupcakes, according to police in Alaska.

Juneau police said that Alicia Bishop and Glenn Merril, were hosting a birthday party for their young son Jackson, when the bear fell through a ceiling window.

The bear stared at the boy for a few seconds.

Merrill and his family then fled to another room and shut the door behind them. The bear then helped itself to all the lemon, blueberry and peanut butter cupcakes.

Merrill then opened the door of the living room leading to backyard, and the couple shouted at the animal until it left the home.

The couple called the police to file a report. Police located the bear and killed it because they believed it is a threat to humans.
