A Coloardo couple recently got a surprise when their car alarm started going off at 2 a.m.
They could see someone moving around inside their car from their window, so they called sheriff’s deputies. When authorities arrived the thief was discovered — a young bear somehow found its way into the car.
After snapping a couple of photos, deputies opened the door and the bear took off, but not before he managed to cause significant damage to the car’s interior. Apparently this isn’t an uncommon problem. People who leave food in their cars when bears are about run the risk of bear-related damage.
Fortunately, damage is repairable. I can only imagine the heart attack I’d get if I walked out to my car at night to find a bear inside.
