Colorado deputies release bear that got stuck in car

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) — It’s a locked room mystery with a twist: Instead of a room, it was a car, and instead of a victim, it was an inquisitive bear.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado got a call about the bear who managed to get into a Subaru wagon without breaking any windows. The car’s owner even said all the doors were closed.

The bear got trapped in the car, leaving a pair of deputies to find a way to get it out.

One deputy, who recorded the escapade on his cellphone, decided to open the hatch, while the other stood guard nearby with a shotgun.

The bear bounded out, leaving behind some snout marks on a window, a shredded interior and questions about how the animal got into the vehicle.
