In Missoula, Montana, a black bear broke into a home on Friday through the mudroom and decided to take a nap in the top shelf of a closet. Deputies from the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office were called to remove the bear accompanied by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officers.

According to the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office, the bear, perhaps right out of the “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” tale, began very early in the morning:

“Today at approximately 5:45am deputies responded to a call up Butler Creek for a bear stuck inside a home. When deputies arrived, they discovered this black bear had opened the door to the mudroom of this residence and somehow managed to deadbolt the door from inside. After being unable to leave, the bear began ripping the room apart but then decided he was tired and climbed up into the closet for a nap.”

And so the deputies, much like the fairy tale goes, tried to wake the bear up; hey it’s time to leave not so cuddly little guy, but…

“When deputies knocked on the window, the bear was not the least bit impressed. He slowly stretched, yawned and, unamused, looked toward the door. Eventually, deputies were able to unlock the door in hopes he would hop down and leave. However, their attempts were only met with more big bear yawns.”

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks tranquilized the bear so he could be relocated. The homeowners were glad he was removed in good health.

“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)! But seriously, lock up!”
