A family in Missoula woke up to locate a surprising guest resting in their storage room – a wild bear! Agents of the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office reacted to an early-morning call about a wild bear discovered dozing in a family’s home recently.
The mountain bear had “opened the entryway to the mudroom of this living arrangement and by one way or another figured out how to deadbolt the entryway from inside,” the sheriff’s office clarified in a Facebook post. “In the wake of being not able leave, the bear started tearing the room separated yet then chosen he was drained and moved up into the wardrobe for a snooze.”
That’s the way the delegates discovered him – roosted on a rack, dozing. “At the point when agents thumped on the window, the bear was not in any way shape or form dazzled. He gradually extended, yawned and, unamused, looked toward the entryway,” they proceeded to portray. Resolute, the agents endeavored to get the bear to leave alone volition.
“Eventually, deputies were able to unlock the door in hopes he would hop down and leave,” the post went on to describe. “However, their attempts were only met with more big bear yawns.”
It seemed the bear was in no hurry to leave. So deputies took the next step. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks came and assisted, tranquilizing the bear so he could be relocated. He got a much longer nap than he probably was planning on taking but it was for the best.
The sheriff’s office shared that “The homeowners were glad he was removed in good health, but won’t soon forget when this intruder came looking for the bear necessities!” They also encouraged people to lock their doors, joking the bear visitor was a bit like Goldilocks. “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!”
