Bear locks itself in home, takes a nap in closet


Staten Island, N.Y. — Maybe he was looking for the bed that was “not too hard,” and “not too soft.”

Authorities say a black bear locked itself inside a Montana home on Friday and then found comfort in the closet, according to an Associated Press report.

Missoula County sheriff’s officials said the bear “just yawned,” when police knocked on the window, the report says.

Officials were able to unlock the door, but failed to get the bear to leave.

Authorities called Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department officials, who tranquilized the bear so it could be removed, the report says.

Officials said in a Facebook post that police responded to a report that the bear opened the door to the Montana home’s mudroom and “somehow locked the deadbolt once inside.”

The Associated Press said the bear “began ripping the room apart” before cuddling up in the closet.
