LARKSPUR, Colo. (CBS4) – Colorado Parks and Wildlife are asking Coloradans to take any food or liquids out of their car before they park it in bear country. The reminder comes after a bear got inside a vehicle in Larkspur and left some serious damage.

Officers say someone left a case of beer in the back seat. The bear was inside for at least an hour before it was released.
