The police were then summoned to resolve the situation. When the fuzz arrived, the bear made a spectacular escape by sneaking through a wall, making comparisons with the iconic Kool-Aid Man.
The incident was also reported on the Facebook page of the Estes Park Police Department, which offers some additional details.

The creature exploded in the ground floor of the house and was spotted by a neighbor who immediately contacted the owners.
The bear was not fighting and the police arrived. She then decided that the fastest way out of the house was from the wall, causing a lot of damage in her wake.
