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."
Sources are reporting that the cast of the of Avatar were given special gifts this week from producers James Cameron and Jon Landau : a brand new blue Toyota Prius!
The 11 principal cast members were bestowed their new rides for all the hard work they put into the film, but as far as we hear, none of the crew members were given the same.
Granted, there was probably like 7,000 animators and special effects people on this movie, making it rather expensive to give ALL of them new cars, but lets face facts - the movie didn't make $2.7 billion because of the acting. A majority of that dough came from 3D IMAX sales.
