Getting an unwanted animal visitor in your vehicle can be a pain. Removing that spider or snake from the car can be a challenge but this week's video shows how challenging it can be to deal with a much bigger passenger.

A police officer in California was confronted with a concerning conundrum as he had to break a window to free a black bear trapped inside the locked vehicle near Lake Tahoe.

According to a report from the local sherriff's department, the inside of the vehicle was so heavily damaged that the doors could not be opened to release the bear without smashing the window.

No one was harmed in the incident and the bear promptly fleed into the nearby forest.
