A couple visiting Gatlinburg, Tennessee, was in for quite the surprise when they went outside and saw a bear. But the huge bear standing outside their cabin wasn’t alone.

Somehow, a baby bear had found himself trapped in their SUV. His mom stood a few feet from the car.

“We’re trying to get the door unlocked,” the woman filming said. “But there’s Mama Bear.”

The woman’s husband quickly jumped out of the front seat of the car they were sitting in and pulled the driver’s side door of the SUV open. Unfortunately, it didn’t stay open and shut just as the baby bear was about to escape.

“Van, please be careful!” the wife told her husband.

The couple stayed in the other car as they tried to think of a way to help the bear but also keep themselves safe from an angry mama bear.

As you’ll see in the clip below, the man hopped out of the car one more time and pulled on the driver’s door. The door is completely ripped to shreds by the bear’s massive claws, but the car isn’t in terrible shape after this surprise visitor.

The door started to swing shut once again but, luckily, the bear was able to hop off the front seat and get outside!
