Bear falls asleep in wardrobe after entering home

A family in Montana woke up Friday morning to an unexpected guest in their home. Authorities said they hoped the bear would hop down from the shelf he was on and leave, but that didn't happen.

The Missoula County Sheriff's Office responded a 911 call at around 5:45 a.m. after someone reported a black bear had entered their Butler Creek residence.

According to the Missoula County Sheriff's Office, officers arrived to find that the bear had somehow opened the door to the residence and deadbolt it, locking itself in the home.

That's when authorities say the bear climbed to the top shelf of the closet and took a "nap".

Deputies then knocked on the mudroom window, however the bear was unimpressed.

The bear began ripping apart the property's mudroom and homeowners quickly called the Missoula County Sheriff's Office for help with the Goldilocks-style situation.

Deputies tried to get the bear's attention from outside, but the animal just "slowly stretched, yawned and, unamused, looked toward the door".

However, the bear merely just yawned some more.

The bear was eventually tranquilized and relocated in good health.
