Car - zero. Bear - 1.

That's the score after deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff's Office responded to a vehicle trespass call with an "unusual suspect."

The trespasser? A bear — who locked himself in.

The sheriff's office posted about the incident on its Facebook page. The bear locked himself in the car on Monday in the mountains near Lyons, about 30 miles northwest of Boulder.

"They were able to open the car door and safely let the bear out without anyone, including the bear, being harmed," the sheriff's office posted.

Attached to the post is a photo of a bear looking through the car's window at the deputy.

The sheriff's office used the post to remind people that wildlife is "out and about" while looking for food this time of year.

"Trust us, you don’t want to have to deal with a 'hangry' bear," the post says.
