Officials were called in after a black bear was spotted breaking into cars outside a children's school.

Multiple sightings of the bear had been reported near the elementary school grounds before yesterday's incident.

A spokesperson for Tyler Elementary School in Gainesville, Prince William County said that parents had been informed.

Children between the ages of 6 to 11 attend the US school - and authorities were quick to ensure their safety.

However, social media found the incident more funny than alarming.
