Elk NetworkBear Locks Itself Inside Car, Thrashes Interior

General | August 2, 2018

So a bear walks into a car… You can create your own punchline but chances are the owner of a car in the mountains of north-central Colorado isn’t laughing.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, the car owner both left the vehicle unlocked and left some uneaten goodies inside. The result is a young black bear opened the door, shut itself inside, ate  the snack and then fell asleep.

Authorities used a cable to eventually pop the door open and the bear ran off into the brush but it left behind an absolute mess.

The moral of the story is to lock your vehicle and don’t leave munchies inside where wildlife can get to them.
