Bear traps itself in car

A furry bandit had some bad luck on Friday the 13th when it locked itself inside a vehicle.

Port Moody Police released video of the incident to remind people to keep their vehicles locked and to remove any attractants that might lure bears that are fattening up for hibernation.

Although there was no food in the car, the bear climbed inside to check, and when the door closed, found itself trapped. It proceeded to tear up the inside of the vehicle in an attempt to get out.

Police and members of the BC Conservation Officer Service arrived on the scene just after midnight, and COs unlocked the car to free the bear, which continued on its way.

Judging by the damage to the car’s interior, it had been in there for some time, said acting Sgt Rob Degoey.

“It’s a good reminder to keep the cars locked," he said. "You never know who is going to try and get in."
