California Sheriff's Deputies Shoot Bean Bags at Car to Free Trapped Bear

Deputies had to think creatively to free the trapped animal.

When California sheriff's deputies stumbled upon a bear trapped inside a car in Lake Tahoe, they had to think creatively to break the animal out. 

So deputies with the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office fired bean bags at the vehicle's back window to break the glass and help the bear make its way to freedom.

Video shows the startled bear scrambling out the hole and dashing off into the woods. 

It's not clear how the bear got trapped in the car.
