Authorities say a black bear somehow locked itself inside a Montana home and then nestled onto a closet shelf that wasn’t too hard, wasn’t too soft, but just right for a nap.

Missoula County Sheriff’s officials said the bear just yawned when deputies knocked on the window and unlocked the door in an attempt to coax it to leave on Friday morning.

They had to call Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department officials, who tranquillised the bear so it could be relocated.

Sheriff’s officials wrote, in a Facebook post, that deputies responded at 5:45 a.m. to a call that a bear opened the door of the house and somehow locked the deadbolt from inside.

Later, the department also shared a video from of their “bear adventure!”

Officials also said that the bear ripped the room apart before climbing up the closet for a nap.
