Sunday, June 23rd 2019, 11:06 am - The bear ripped apart the residence before he found a comfortable spot to rest
A black bear broke into a Montana home, tore apart the residence, then found a comfortable spot to nap in a closet.
Responders from the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office discovered that the bear figured out how to enter the door to the home and then locked the deadbolt from the inside.
After creating a large mess while possibly trying to find an exit the bear climbed up on a shelf in the closet and began to sleep.
“When deputies knocked on the window, the bear was not the least bit impressed. He slowly stretched, yawned and, unamused, looked toward the door,” read a Facebook post from the Missoula County Sheriff's Office.
Officers then contacted Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks to assist with removing the bear who was then tranquillized so it could be relocated.
The Missoula County Sheriff's Office state in their Facebook post that this incident serves as a reminder for residents to lock their doors to prevent wild animals from entering.
