Bear found falling asleep in wardrobe after entering home

25 June 2019

A black bear looking for a cozy place to snooze scared the daylights out of a family when they discovered him hiding inside their Montana home.

A mountain bear accidentally locked himself inside a Shelf while strolling into a Missoula, Montana, home early Friday morning.

Alerted to the intrusion in Butler Creek, police said the large mammal just yawned when officers knocked on the window to wake it up.

'Eventually, deputies were able to unlock the door in hopes he would hop down and leave.

Writing on their Facebook page Missoula County police said: "This is another good reason to lock up, as we also have unconfirmed reports that he tried two other closets before he decided this one was juuuuuust right (kidding)!"

It began ripping the room apart before apparently feeling exhausted and climbing into the wardrobe for a nap. "However, their attempts were only met with more big bear yawns". Once trapped inside, the bear reportedly damaged the mudroom before "he decided he was exhausted".

They had to call Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department officials, who tranquillised the bear so it could be relocated.
