California police are reminding drivers to lock their car doors after a bear let itself inside an unlocked vehicle near Lake Tahoe and destroyed the interior.
The bear couldn't escape as easily as it had entered the vehicle and became trapped inside, the Placer County Sheriffs Office said Wednesday.
"The bear had somehow locked the doors and broke the handles off, so they couldnt open it from the outside," Sgt. Dave Hunt told FOX40 Sacramento.
While trapped inside, the bear apparently ripped the seats apart, tore open the glove compartment and pulled down part of the ceiling.
The animal also urinated, defecated and spit all over the destroyed interior, police said.
The department called the vehicle a total loss.
Police were eventually able to open the rear hatch to let the bear escape, FOX40 reported.
Sheriffs deputies told the station the wild animal was looking for food and warned those visiting the area not to leave food in their cars as bear season enters full swing.
Bear activity increases during mating season in June and July, according to the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
The animals will also eat anything that seems edible, including garbage.

He didn’t mean nuffin’ personal about it.
Reminds me of midnight shift with the sheriffs department.
He urinated, defecated and spit in it less then most leftist protesters would of.
Yuck! It’s too bad they were in the wilderness. How on earth did they get home? No one would want to get into that car for any reason, with the stink of bear poop and spit. Ugh, I cannot imagine how nauseating.
I know a logging crew that were over the hill on a yarder setting when a bear got in the crummie and ate their lunches and trashed the crummie.
Gives the “inmate workers” something to do the morning! :>)
Well, if the poor bear had been in S.F. it wouldn’t have had to go in a car...
farmers insurance commercial in the making.
The bear doesn’t shit in the woods, it shits in the car. Seen it and covered it. Farmers insurance: we know a thing or two because weve seen a thing or two
These bears won’t quit!
Every Uber Driver’s worse nightmare with a ‘Bad Client’.
Unlike suspects in the back of a police car, who might do all three of those things deliberately, my guess is the bear simply panicked when it realized it was trapped inside the car and just 'cut loose' in fear. The "spitting" was probably drool like you would sometimes see with large dogs.
Now we know they just don’t do it in the woods.
I see a solution to the Mt. Everest problem on multiple levels.
