New video shows the moment a sheriff’s deputy rescued a bear that became trapped in a car. 

The black bear found it’s way into a Suburau Outback parked on the north side of California’s Lake Tahoe and destroyed the interior so much that the doors couldn’t be unlocked. 

So a deputy with the Placer County Sheriff’s Department smashed open a window to let the bear out.

The video shows Deputy Dave Lade slowly approaching the car, quickly hitting the driver’s side backseat window a few times before it smashes and then he sprints away.

The bear pokes its head out of the window, then jumps out of the car and runs back into the woods. 

It’s unclear how the bear got into the car in the first place. 

Though the bear has a brown coat, it’s a black bear because they are the only types of bears native to California. They range in color from blonde to black.
