Students at Bozeman High School in Montana saw a new student roaming the halls – a giant bear.
The bear, which entered through a garage door, was spotted in the cafeteria that morning, in the halls, and then on the football field, before being escorted away by a police officer, according to reports.
No one was injured and no classes were delayed in the incident.
School Principal Kevin Conwell told The Bozeman Daily Chronicle: “This is my first ‘bear-in-a-building’ experience. It just kind of landed in our lap.”
Leon Uebelhoer, a foreign exchange student from Germany who attends the school, shot video of the animal roaming around:
“It definitely raised my blood pressure. There’s a wild animal in the building,” Conwell said.
The school district Superintendent Rob Watson joked about the incident with the Chronicle: “I’m sure we’ve had animals in the school before, but I’m not aware of a bear.”
It is always tough being the new student in class.
