Evan Nielson from Truckee, California, faced an unusual sight when he discovered a black bear in his truck.

The bear had somehow opened the door of the vehicle and climbed in.

"At one point he had both hands on the steering wheel and was honking the horn with his snout," said Mr Nielson, who recorded the incident with a mobile phone camera.

Police arrived and let the bear out, but the truck was left badly damaged by the encounter.
