A Montana family woke up to find an unwelcome visitor on Friday. A black bear had somehow gotten into the house's mudroom and locked himself inside.

The bear burglar began ripping the room apart once it realized it couldn't get out.

It eventually gave up trying to force its way out and climbed onto the top shelf of a closet to fall asleep.

Armed with a tranquiler gun, wildlife officials removed the bear and returned it to the wild.
