A Florida woman's car stood no chance, not with a black bear trapped inside.

According to a report from the Orlando Sentinel, a black bear trapped itself inside a Florida woman's car this week and wound up doing $17,000 in damage while trying to free itself. The bear -- estimated to be 450 pounds -- damaged the vehicle's seats, console and roof, according to the Orlando Sentinel report.

The woman's father managed to open the car's door, allowing the bear to escape, according to the Orlando Sentinel report.
