Police in Virginia were called to the house of Ryan McClanahan and his family just after 5am on May 11th, when the family woke to the sound of their own car horn in the driveway.

When Roanoke County PD Office Thayer arrived on scene, he discovered that a 200lb black bear cub had managed to get into the car and accidentally closed itself inside! The officer was able to get the bear to come out of the back door and the cub then ran into the woods.

Just goes to show that police never know what they're going to see on a call! But it did give the officer a chance to relay an important message. "always lock your car doors. It's not just thieves that break into your cars!"
