This police officer should feel bear-y lucky no one was injured!

A deputy of the Placer County Sheriff’s Office in California was called to help free a bear that trapped itself in a car. 

The curious animal destroyed the interior of the Subaru Outback so badly that the doors couldn’t even be unlocked.

The officer was forced to smash a window allowing the bear to escape and flee into the forest! The department shared the incredible video on Facebook writing, "It was decided the safest way to get the bear out of the car was to break the window."

While it might not have been the cleanest approach, this method sure was effective!
