Mary Jane Yarbrough teaches art in Warner Robins, Georgia, and to get a head start on a project for next semester she's taking an art class in Gatlinburg (Tennessee).
When she woke up the next morning she found herself face to face with a black bear. She's fine, but the same can't be said for her car.
Halfway through her week long class, Yarbrough woke up to a scene she never expected. "It was six in the morning and I just keep hearing honking happening." She says she was worried something was wrong with her neighbor.
"I open the door. My dog is going crazy and I see that it's my car that is honking and shaking and I was like 'Oh my gosh, someone is in there. Someone is stuck in my car.'" When she got closer she realized it was a bear inside her car.
"The bear actually like smacked the window and I was like 'Oh my gosh, that's a bear,'" says Yarbrough. "It was just disbelief. Like there is no way."
