Man Hilariously Opens Door From The Roof As He Tries To Get A Black Bear Out Of Truck

That is definitely an inconvenience…

I certainly wouldn’t be hoping right in there with him, but, I do have questions, starting with… how?

Black bears are relatively small compared to other bears but large in terms if all animals in North America. They can weigh over 600 – pounds and stand up to 6 feet tall.

Black bears are known to be intelligent animals, with a keen sense of smell and a good memory. They are capable of learning and remembering complex tasks, such as how to access food sources..

They are also omnivorous, meaning they eat both plants and animals. They will eat anything they think has calories as they need a lot. Adult black bears require approximately 5,000 to 20,000 calories per day to maintain their weight, depending on their size and activity level. During the fall, they may consume up to 20,000 calories per day to build up fat stores for the winter hibernation.

One crazy thing these creatures can do is break into vehicles. This is often because they can smell food inside, and they have learned that cars and trucks can be a reliable source of food.

This man is seen on the top of his truck roof, trying to stay clear of the door while also trying to open it.

It becomes clear why he is so cautious as he gets the door opened. A black bear immediately pushes out and takes off down the road.

Right in broad daylight, this creature opened his door and got stuck inside the truck. As we have seen time and time again, vehicles are fairly easy to get into for bears, but getting out can be another story.

Talk about a shock when you’re going to get into your vehicle.

These bears are always up to something.

Smoky Mountain Black Bear Trashes Tourist’s Car In Gatlinburg

The official summer of black bears gone wild continues.

Black bears have been living la vida loco lately, from chilling on the couch to relaxing in a hot tub, chasing mountain bikers, crashing pool parties, and getting chased out of backyards.

An art teacher from Georgia decided to take a nice little trip and artistic retreat to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee this past week.

Everything was relaxing and going great. Then a bear just absolutely destroyed her vehicle.

Mary Jane Yarbrough was vacationing just outside of Gatlinburg and taking an art class at a nearby studio to get a head start on her curriculum for the next school year when her car was ransacked by a full sized black bear.

Halfway through her week long stay, she woke up at 6am to notice that someone or something in the midst of vandalizing her ride.

“I open the door. My dog is going crazy and I see that it’s my car that is honking and shaking and I was like ‘Oh my gosh, someone is in there. Someone is stuck in my car.”

She followed her dog to see who was in her car. But she found an animal not a person.

“The bear actually like smacked the window and I was like ‘Oh my gosh, that’s a bear!

It was just disbelief. Like there is no way.”

According to 13 WMAZ News, Yarbrough speculates that the car was sitting on a slight tilt with the door unlocked and gravity shut the door and trapped the bear inside after he opened the door.

Eventually the police were able to get the bear freed from the Toyota Camry, but not before the bruin ripped it to pieces.

“He ripped the dash, my airbag, the radio is out, he went through my glove box.”

She also said the only items in her car were gum and a protein bar, but that the bear did not eat either. No word on if the bear fired anything up on the aux cord before he destroyed the radio though.

While she acknowledges she has a crazy story to tell, the owner of the vehicle is quite distraught that the bear put her in the market for a new car.

“I was really trying to hold onto that car for just a little longer until it wasn’t so hard to buy a car.”

Serious question that I don’t know the answer to, is vandalism by wild bear not covered under car insurance?

Black Bear Breaks Into Family’s Car In The Smoky Mountains

Talk about some people who involuntarily found themselves in a sticky situation.

A family was visiting their cabin at The Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. And if you know anything about Gatlinburg, Tennessee, you know they got themselves a healthy population of rambunctious black bears.

They’d only been there for five minutes, when outta nowhere a young black bear makes its way to their car.

Sure enough, he smells the birthday cake that’s sitting in the trunk of their car, and it’s doing everything it can to make its way in.

The people begin to try to scare the bear away by turning on the car’s alarm, but it does no good, as the bear miraculously makes its way into the trunk of the car.

Finally, they realize they have to take matters into their own hands, and proceed to walk outside and try to scare the bear away themselves.

Once the young bear has done some damage to the cake, it runs off, but continues to stay close by as it stares the people down.

I have to say, these people have a lot more courage than me.

When a young bear is off by itself, that means the mama bear ain’t too far behind, and that’s when things can get ugly.

Here’s the description from the folks who lost their cake:

“We had just arrived at our cabin in The Smoky Mountains (Gatlinburg). We hadn’t been at our cabin for more than 5 minutes. We were unloading our luggage. We had stopped by a local grocery store to pick up a birthday cake a little while before arriving. The cake was sitting in the rear of the vehicle.

My sister-in-law walked back out to retrieve some more stuff and saw the young bear in the car eating the birthday cake that we had just purchased. She started screaming for us all to come out and see what was happening. The video tells the rest of the story.

I also have the follow-up video that shows mama bear coming a little while later and trying to open the car door to find more cake. I also added a picture of what was left of the cake.”

The black bear is the most common bear to populate the Smoky Mountains, and according to the Smoky Mountain National Park, an estimated 1,500 black bears populate the area.
