Prepare to be amazed by a bear who thinks he is much smarter than the average bear! Well, that is, until it was time to leave the scene. This video will have you in awe over this black bear’s curiosity and ingenuity that left it trapped in a vehicle with egg on its face.
It was a nice summer morning for one outdoor enthusiast - until a big black bear entered their car and got stuck in there, that is. The bear figured out how to get into the car, but it just wasn’t clever enough to get out in time to avoid an embarrassing video uploaded to the internet by police officers.
Jefferson County, Colorado Deputies Tillman and McLaughlin were faced with a bear-clawed conundrum. They responded to a call that would have most people scratching their heads or simply running away, but they were able to bravely get close enough to the car to get some amazing footage of this unbearable situation.
"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," the Jefferson County YouTube video description reads.
The adorable and curious bear was unable to escape on its own: "Deputies could tell by all the moisture on the windows that he’d clearly been inside for a while," the YouTube description. It appeared to be a black bear cub and probably had a mother bear waiting for it nearby. This could be a very dangerous situation, but luckily the officers responding were smart enough to get the situation under control. You have to watch to see what happens next!
According to the Jefferson County website, a black bear cub seemingly on its own can be a recipe for disaster. Despite this, the officers were brave enough to save the bear and release it without any harm to man or bear.
