A bizarre video has emerged on the Internet of a bear in Colorado somehow getting itself trapped inside of a car.

The video was posted by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, who responded to the strange a call in the town of Golden, Colorado.

The owner of the car, 17-year-old Annie Bruecker, and her mother were shocked when they discovered what was inside her Subaru.

Annie had left the car parked outside her house but had not locked the doors. The doors however were shut so the bear managed to open the car, get inside and and lock itself in.


In a statement following the incident the police department said:

“No windows were broken. The door handles weren’t the kind you lift up. And yet somehow this medium-sized bear managed to open a door, crawl inside and close the door behind him.

“Deputies could tell by all the moisture on the windows that he’d clearly been inside for a while."

The bear was safely released from the car and there were no injuries to either the animal or any of the people involved.
