Bear in the Bathroom

A young black bear climbed into the window of the ladies' room at Buck's T-4 Lodge in Big Sky, Montana. He couldn't get back out the window he came in, and didn't know how to open the door. Hotel staff knew what to do, though- call for help and pull out the phones to take video, which they uploaded to Facebook.

The sheriff arrived at the lodge quickly after the hotel staff called, but guests and the bear had to hang out for a few hours while waiting for Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks to show up due to distance. The little guy was "pretty spooked" by the people gathered outside the bathroom door. He dealt with his fear by doing what we've all done when faced with trouble: nap.

"He made himself at home in the bathroom counter where the sinks are and went to sleep," O'Connor said.

The game warden and his team tranquilized the bear and set a phone in the restroom and monitored the bear through FaceTime. He was eventually removed and taken to a remote location for release. The bear left behind some damage, though- a shredded towel dispenser and a sink full of poop. No word on whether the bear scat was full of berry seeds and squirrel fur.
