COLFAX, Calif. (WJW) — A hungry bear got stuck in a car during a search for food.
According to Placer County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a “suspicious circumstances” call earlier this week.
When they arrived, they found a bear locked inside a vehicle.
Deputies broke the window and were able to get the bear out safely.
It’s not clear how it got inside but officials say there was probably some type of food inside the bear could smell.
The vehicle was severely damaged.
