    YIKES! That would be so scary-

    From above link:

    "the officer on duty told him that, if he felt up to it, he should open the door and let the bear exit the vehicle on its own. So he did -- jumping into his nearby Toyota truck after opening the door -- and the bear ran off into the woods"

    Ya know, maybe I'm just weird, but if I call the cops because a bear is eating my car, I'd rather hope they wouldn't tell me to deal with it myself.

    No worries, no one even came out, so the bear has no strike. And in Boulder, they get 3 strikes. And even if they had tagged him, there was really no human interaction, so he would still be okay. What dooms them is when they lose their fear of humans. Boulder is really good about their wildlife-they don't relish having to put down critters and only do it as a last resort. The front range is in for a lot of wildlife/human interactions because of the fires. It's going to be really bad.

    So bears not only go in the woods, they go in cars too.

    Wink

    We have it happen occasionally in California too. In one case in Lake Tahoe, IIRC, the bear threw the car into reverse gear and went down a driveway and crashed! In this case, the guy had a garbage bag in the car- that's what attracted it.

    That happened in Larkspur, CO a few years ago, too, Linask. Here's another article about more "Bears in Cars". It seems it's the rage nowadays.

    He had a license but he could barely drive and had grizzly road manners.

    And again! Literally my former neighbors....From now on, instead of saying, "does a bear #*^# in the woods?" I'm going to say instead, "Does a bear #*^# in a car?"
