Meanwhile, in Alaska, bears are actually falling from the sky.

During a birthday party at the home of Alicia Bishop and Glenn Merrill in Juneau, a young male black bear fell through the skylight while they were making cupcakes for their one-year-old son.

"I was literally in the room, and I heard this cracking," Glenn told the Juneau Empire. "And the next thing you know, there's this bear that, I mean, literally, fell right from [the skylight]. It was like one meter away from me."

We cannot confirm if the bear RSVP'd to the party or not. If he didn't, that's actually quite rude that he crashed the party.

According to the parents, the bear (who officials say weighed around 180 pounds) was super casual after he dropped in on them, and then he did exactly what we would have done: zeroed in on the cupcakes.

After the family fled from the room, Alicia said it walked to the cupcake table, put its paws up on it and started licking the delicious treats.

For those of you who are wondering, the cupcakes were lemon blueberry and peanut butter. We hope the bear got its fill of the PB ones because who cares about fruit-flavored cupcakes?!

"It was up by the window like, ‘I want more cupcakes,'" Alicia said.

Sadly, this bear reportedly had a history of breaking into houses, and Juneau police officers had to put it down.

"We don't take killing or destroying bears lightly," said Ryan Scott of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. "People were inside that building. I think it was appropriate for that given the situation."

R.I.P., cupcake bear. Your zest for birthday cupcakes and your grand entrance into the party will never be forgotten.
