ESTES PARK, Colo. – A bear broke into a home in Estes Park on Friday night – and made quite the impression on its way out.

The bear entered the home near the area of Fall River Road, apparently attracted by a scent, according to a Facebook post from Estes Park police. When an officer responded, the bear "forcibly breached a hole in the wall like the Kool-Aid Man" and escaped, police said.

No one was apparently injured in the incident, except the wall.

Police didn't say how the bear initially broke into the home. But as they mentioned on the Facebook post, be sure to close and lock all windows and doors to your homes and vehicles.
