“What happens when a bear enters your car because something inside smells tasty and manages to get trapped inside? This happens!” Colorado Parks and Wildlife tweeted.

“A trapped bear, desperate to escape, is a potentially dangerous situation,” CPW wrote.

In this case, a Colorado State Patrol trooper opened the door and the bear ran off — but the car owner was left with quite a mess.

CPW reminded people to lock car doors and windows, and remove attractants like fast food, sodas, groceries and candy, and also perfumed products like wipes. Visit
