CARNELIAN BAY, Calif. (AP) – A bear that managed to break into a car needed help from a sheriff’s deputy to get out.

The Placer County Sheriff’s Office in Northern California says it happened near Lake Tahoe. The bear had damaged the Subaru Outback so badly that the doors would not unlock.

Video shows a deputy was brave enough to break a window so the bear could jump out and run back to the forest.
