Montana bear makes himself right at home in residence

A black bear created a stir in the U.S. when it somehow locked itself inside a Montana home and then nestled in to a wardrobe for a nap.

Alerted to the intrusion in Butler Creek, police said the large mammal just yawned when officers knocked on the window to wake it up. Even after unlocking the door, the bear did not leave.

When deputies arrived, they discovered the bear had opened the mudroom door, entered the residence and somehow managed to lock the deadbolt.

Canucks acquire JT Miller from Lightning for Mazanec, draft picks
Miller is an experienced and versatile offensive contributor", Canucks GM Jim Benning said in a release from the club. The hockey world has descended on Vancouver this weekend for the annual NHL Entry Draft, which starts today, 5 p.m.

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. He responded by slowly stretching, yawning and unamusingly looking toward the door. But, their efforts were just met with bear yawns.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks showed up to assist and tranquillize the bear so he could be relocated. Once trapped inside, the bear reportedly damaged the mudroom before "he decided he was exhausted".

The 3-year-old, who allegedly weighed around 70 pounds, at first tore the room separated in the event of finding he was caught, the Missoula County Sheriff's Office composed on Facebook.
