Some visitors to a Tennessee cabin got a big surprise when they discovered a baby bear in their car.
Perhaps it was the inclement weather or some dog treats that caused the bear to climb into the unlocked car. It wasn’t until they heard the horn blowing that they realized something was up.
Adding to the drama, mama bear was lingering nearby as the group tried to free the cub.
Finally, the group hatched a plan to help the bear make its escape. They pulled another vehicle alongside and reached out to open the car door to let the bear out.
After one failed attempt, the bear was out and ran off.
No one – human or bear – were injured in the encounter.
The friends called the police following the “bear-jacking.” The officer who came to the scene believed the bears had wandered out of their den in search of food.
