A family on vacation in Lake Tahoe had their Prius “stolen” by a black bear.
That’s a big step for bears, from stealing picnic baskets to cars. Yogi reference, anyone?
The bear broke into the car, then got stuck. While struggling to get out, it somehow switched the car into gear and the Prius, bear inside, rolled down the family’s driveway and across the street, crashing into a neighbors porch.
The bear eventually made it’s way out of the car before police arrived on the scene to apprehend the “burgler.”
The car was totalled. The owner, Cece McCarthy said:
"He had ripped out the back seat. There's nothing left. There's nothing left inside of our Prius. Gone."
Poor Prius… at least the bear's okay!
