Workers at a lumber company in northeastern Japan got a wild surprise when they showed up for work Friday morning: a bear in their office. 

Staff reported the bear to police just after 6 a.m. 

Some workers took their cell phones out to film the bear as it climbed on shelves in the office. 

Police said the bear was about three feet long. 

They worked with a local wildlife association to tranquilize it and take it away. 

No injuries were reported.
