It’s officially bear season in Tahoe, where bears have awakened from their yearly hibernation in search of food. There have been plenty of reports of bear sightings and house break-ins in the Tahoe area, and now the bears are becoming car vandals as well.
A Placer County sheriff recently found a large bear stuck in a Subaru Outback in Tahoe’s Carnelian Bay. The bear had destroyed the interior of the car so badly, the deputy had to break the window in order for the animal to escape.
In the video, you can see the deputy reluctantly attempt to break the window as the bear shakes the car ferociously from the inside. Check out the video below:
Here is what the Placer County sheriff had to say about the incident:
A Placer County Sheriff’s deputy had to rescue a bear that trapped itself inside a car recently near Lake Tahoe.
The bear got into a Subaru Outback in Carnelian Bay and destroyed the interior so badly that the doors couldn’t be unlocked. It was decided the safest way to get the bear out of the car was to break the window. Deputy Lade was brave enough to break the window, allowing the bear to jump out and flee into the forest.
