It ended up in a new skateboard park, and didn't have a way to climb out.
Authorities say it looks as if the bear had been in the park all night when they found it Tuesday morning.
The solution to get the bear out was to give it a way to climb out.
So, authorities with the Snowmass Parks and Rec Department put a long ladder down into the skateboard bowl and the bear eventually climbed up and got out.
In Vail, another bear chewed up the steering wheel of a Subaru Forester. It also scratched up the rest of the car and managed to deploy the air bags.
