A new cabin has been attacked by a bear in Norway, reports say.
Damage caused by the bear on the property in Sør Varanger County in Finnmark, northern Norway was spotted by reindeer herders on Sunday.
Owner Unni Hamborg from Kirkenes told NRK that they were lucky not to have been in the cabin when the bear attacked.
Unni Hamborg’s son Simen visited the cabin on Monday to fix the damage, he said that panels had been ripped of the walls and food was lying around cabin.
“It was littered with mashed potatoes, sugar and tea. The bear had taken the washing powder outdoors”, he said.
This is not the first cabin to be visited by a bear in the area. Another cabin a few miles away from the one belonging to Unni Hamborg was also damaged by a bear attack.
The Directorate for Nature Mangement (DN) said they were analysing hair collected from both sites to determine whether the two cabins were visited by the same bear.
