Gee Yogi, I don't think the Ranger's going to like this.

Students at Bozeman High School had a different kind of exchange student on their campus Wednesday morning -- one from a nearby forest.

A local bear walked into the school from an open garage door near the football field, according to KZBK TV.

The bear, whose name probably wasn't Yogi, made its way to the interior of a courtyard, according to Bozeman Schools Superintendent Rob Watson.

“He was just kind of sniffing around the edge of the building,” Watson told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.

The bear then walked into the school and started walking down the hall inside the high school around 7:30 a.m.

Students and teachers inside the school were put into classrooms with closed doors.

Meanwhile, Bozeman Police chased the bear out of the school and into an open field, according to the Billings Gazette.

There have been no bear sightings since, Officer Rick Musson told the paper.
