Bear breaks into house, sleeps in closet

This is what happens when you don't lock up. Image Credit: Facebook / Missoula County Sheriff's Office
A homeowner in Missoula County, Montana recently returned home to find a rather unwelcome guest.
Deputies were alerted to the unexpected intrusion after a black bear was found to have made its way into the house before somehow locking the door behind it from the inside.

According to reports, the curious animal, which had managed to gain access through an unlocked laundry room, had climbed in to a closet and made itself at home on the top shelf.

"When deputies arrived, they discovered this black bear had opened the door to the mudroom of this residence and somehow managed to deadbolt the door from inside," the Sheriff's Office wrote.

"When deputies knocked on the window, the bear was not the least bit impressed. He slowly stretched, yawned and, unamused, looked toward the door."

The sleepy bear was eventually tranquilized and removed from the premises.

"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)!" the Sheriff's Office wrote.

Bears are one of the few wild animals that don't seem to have a fear of humans. I'm plenty scared of them, however. If I encounter bear poop when hiking (which has happened) I do a 180 immediately.

Amazing how the bear climbed up there. I know they can, but would have expected more damage.

They have a totally empty closet?†

I'll explain... In some homes in the†U.S., there is an area known as the "mudroom", or "mud room" It's a small foyer just after the entry door, and there is usually another door before going into the main house. The purpose of the mudroom is to take-off your mud encrusted boots or snow boots and put on normal shoes, or vice-versa if you're going out in bad weather. So, the mud room closet itself is rarely used, and most people don't put their boots or house shoes in there... they just leave them in the foyer against the wall on a mat. Sometimes the mud room closet holds heavy weather jackets, ... [More]

No, let me explain... I have a husband who tries his best to fill up every empty space in the house. Every time I clear out a spot he finds something to fill it. Our house has three tiny†closets because it's old. I have basically turned one small room into my†closet and storage for items bought in bulk. I forbid my husband to put anything in there. About once a month I have to go in†and get the things out that he tries to sneak in there. I take them into his wood†room and put the items on his woodworking tables†forcing†him to find another solution. He has the entire huge attic, the basement, h... [More]

When it comes out of the closet, does it then sing Show tunes, and find a fancy to pink fizzy drinks ?
