A black bear broke into a house in the US before escaping by smashing through a wall.

Police in Colorado said the break-in happened on Friday evening when the house was vacant. Nobody was injured, reports BBC.

The smell of rubbish probably attracted the bear, Estes Park police said.

“Upon officer’s arrival, said bear forcibly breached a hole in the wall like the ‘Kool-Aid Man’ and made its escape,” the police department wrote on Facebook.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife reported that bears broke into more than 35 vehicles and nine houses in the Estes Park area in the 10 days before August 03.
