Welcome to bear school, also known as Bozeman High in Gallatin County, Montana.

A black bear was spotted roaming the halls of the school on Wednesday morning, acting surprisingly calm as it wandered along the corridor. “This is my first ‘bear-in-a-building’ experience,” Principal Kevin Conwell told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. “It just kind of landed in our lap.”

If there’s one thing you don’t want landing in your lap, it’s a wild bear. But school officials seemed impressively chill about the animal hanging out in their school, as proven by this video from before the bear was ushered out of the building.

Can you imagine missing morning classes because your school was invaded by a wild bear? What an excuse.
