Imagine walking outside one day and seeing a bear—yes, a bear—chilling inside of your car. That's what one driver in Truckee, Calif. almost woke up to yesterday morning after a bear climbed into an SUV late Sunday night and accidentally locked himself inside of it and couldn't get out. As you can see in the photo above, the bear managed to get himself stuck in the trunk of the SUV and looked like he was in for a long night inside of the vehicle.

Fortunately, someone saw the bear inside the SUV late Sunday and called police. And after trying unsuccessfully to locate the owner of the SUV, cops had to resort to smashing out the SUV's back window in order to free the bear. The bear then worked its way out of the SUV and scurried away. Oddly, this is not the first time that this has happened in Truckee, either. The town has apparently had several instances of this in recent weeks with bears working their way into vehicles and getting stuck.

That being said, make sure you lock your car doors if you live in Truckee. Otherwise, you might wake up tomorrow and find a bear sitting inside of your car. And who the hell wants to wake up to that?!
