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.
