(NBC News) — A North Carolina family found quite the surprise inside their minivan: a bear!
The bear managed to open the door to Nicole Minkin Lissenden’s unlocked van in Asheville and climbed in.
She said she closed the bear in the van without realizing he was there.
Lissenden said when she went back to her van later she realized the bear was inside.
Her automatic doors failed to open, so her husband unlocked the door for the bear to escape.
However, the bear had a different idea and punched through the driver’s window to crawl out.
