A group of migrants en route to the United Kingdom encountered a polar bear on their journey in Calais, France.

According to the Daily Mail, several migrants tried to hitch a ride in a truck until they spotted a polar bear inside that vehicle.

Several people ran away, but three men decided to jump in.

The bear, named “Nissan” was headed to a British zoo, and the car behind it was filming the trip.

Those people called police, who arrested those migrants.

A witness told The Sun: ‘It only took 17 seconds before four vaulted the barrier and prised open the truck’s back doors.

‘They must have had the surprise of their lives. It shows how desperate they are to get to Britain.’

Simon Marsh of Yorkshire Wildlife Park added: ‘There was a slight hiccup at Calais. Nissan had some unexpected guests in the back of the lorry. Obviously he was in a crate, so it was all very safe and secure, but I think they were a bit surprised when they saw a polar bear.

‘It’s not probably what they were expecting when they opened the back of the lorry. Even at two years old he’s a big animal and he can be very dangerous.’
