This is why you lock vehicles in bear country—total destruction

The owner of a pickup truck in South Lake Tahoe awoke Monday to discover a bear trapped in the cabin of the truck, so he/she called for help and El Dorado County Sheriff deputies responded.

One deputy carefully opened the truck door, allowing the “very angry bear” to run free, according to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post. Another deputy captured photos of the tornado-like destruction inside the cabin:

“Another very important reason to lock your vehicles up at night, particularly in bear country, is that bears are very adept at entering unlocked vehicles looking for food,” the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.

“If you are lucky, they will rummage around and leave your car relatively unharmed. But if you are unlucky, as in this case, and the bear gets locked inside your car…well, let’s just say I don’t think this will buff out.”

More than one commenter on the Facebook post humorously mentioned a certain insurance company slogan: “We know a thing or two because we’ve seen a thing or two.”

But we’re pretty sure the vehicle owner wasn’t amused.
