LARKSPUR, Colo. (CBS4)– Colorado Parks and Wildlife wants to warn people about bears as they begin to wake up from hibernation. Officers said the bears are hungry!
A bear got inside a car in Larkspur last week. The bear traced the scent of lip gloss that was inside the vehicle. There wasn’t even any food!
Bears know how to open car doors. There was no food/trash left inside here, but there was lip gloss. Its scent was enough to entice the bear to check it out.

Officers are advising people to lock their cars and make sure there are no items with scents that can lure bears.
