Black Bear Locks Itself Inside Truck Trying To Get To Bag Of Dog Food

Talk about an unwanted visitor.

Let this be a clear warning to anybody who is camping, or vacationing in a heavily wooded area and/or the mountains…

Do not, and I mean DO NOT… leave any food inside your vehicle, and leave it unlocked.

We’ve seen this mistake made several times in the past. People staying up in the mountains, and leaving food inside their unlocked vehicle because they feel like they’re in a secluded enough area where they don’t have to worry about someone breaking in.

Well it isn’t the “someone” part you have to worry about… it’s the “something.”

Curious (and hungry) black bears with a nose that can smell for miles think nothing of breaking into vehicles, and destroying the interior of it while eating all of the food left behind. Hell, they’ll tear your new truck to shred just to lick the wrapper of a candy bar.

Of course, you can’t blame the bear. It caught a whiff of something good and realized that dinner was right down the road.

This one went down in Evergreen, Colorado, when a Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer had to free a black bear who had trapped itself inside a truck, after sniffing out a bag of dog food.

In the video, you can see the officer slowly approaching the truck, and once he got to the window, you can see the black bear hilariously look him dead in the eyes… not a care in the world.

The bear had somehow locked the truck from the inside, and after the officer unlocked it, he scared the bear back off into the woods.

Talk about being surprised.

Just see for yourself:
