Amazing footage of a bear being released from a car in Colorado has gone viral.

Officers in Jefferson County were pretty surprised when a call came through explaining a bear cub had somehow climbed into an SUV and locked itself in!

WATCH: Bear Trapped In Car Rescued:

“No windows were broken. The door handles weren’t the kind you lift up. And yet somehow this medium-sized bear managed to open a door, crawl inside and close the door behind him,” Officers wrote on Facebook.


Footage released by the Sheriff’s Office shows Deputy McLaughlin and Deputy Tillman carefully opening the boot of the vehicle and releasing the trapped bear cub.

The bear runs away unharmed, sadly, the same be can’t said for the car interior, which has been torn to shreds.
