In Montana one hotel patron cause a panic other travelers and hotel staff.

An open window at the T-4 Lodge and Restaurant in Big Sky looked like a perfect opportunity to explore the unknown for a young black bear who entered the hotel. Once inside the room the bear was stuck and quickly made himself at home.

Quite a few human patrons of the T-4 Lodge have posted photos of the ursine intruder. The T-4 Lodge brought in police and animal handlers from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Even these animal experts had a hard time convincing the furry youngster to leave the comfy confines of the hotel.

Eventually the animal handlers decided to tranquilize the stubborn bear who was then removed safely and returned to the wild.

While the hotel wishes the bear well, they noted it did cause several hundred dollars in damages during its stay.
