How can a bear get into a car - but not get out?

Big Mike said...

Apparently the bear so thoroughly trashed the interior that the door locks could not be worked. Guy had a big pair of brass ones to do what he did. But for the owners, how do you tell the insurance company that the exterior of the car is fine and the drivetrain likewise, but the car is totaled anyway?

It looks like the AP is going into competition with the Onion.

They couldn't just open the door?

Open sunroof.

Where's the remote for the ejection seat when you need it?

Achilles said...

It was a black bear.

Essentially a giant raccoon.

Number of people attacked by black bears is near 0.

"Hey Boo-boo, can you open the door for me?"

Let the animal advocates' voices arise in chorus!

Looks like this bear was just trying to catch some z's but I guess sleeping in a vehicle is verboten in Kalifornia.

Peter Fonda put the bear in there.

Should we be worried that the bear hurried off in the same direction as the cop?

My daughter's car was recently totaled in a rear end crash. Well over half the repair cost was associated with interior damage from every one of the airbags deploying.

If a bear shits in the car is the Pope Catholic?

Wait. Never mind. This Pope is definitely not Catholic.

If it was me I would show them the video.

Suppose the Bear could talk. Would that make a difference?

Shockingly, there are about as many fatalities due to Black Bears as to Brown/Grizzly bears. Granted, Black Bears are generally less aggressive, but there are a lot more of them, closer to people.

They're not common, but 16 people killed by black bears in "North America" since 2000. Black bears sometimes hunt people.

I'd rather run across a puma than a bear.

I think it's terrible when people leave their pets in a hot car.

The Godfather said...

On Good Morning America this morning, they interviewed the cop in the video. He said that after the bear got out of the car it came toward him and his partner and got fairly close, which made them nervous, but then turned away.

When I was camping in Yellowstone many years ago, bears like this were walking through the camp grounds all the time, and you were always told not to keep food in your tent. At that time, I think it was supposed to be safe to keep food locked in your car. I guess the bears have evolved since then.

This makes me think of the SEC case Curtis Publishing Co. v. Butts. There was a joke going
round in the mid 60s, I suppose especially in SEC country. Pretty risqué for the time, I mean there'd be children and adults around. The mothers smiled discretely. Coaches Bear Bryant
and Wally Butts were alleged to have fixed a game. There was a big settlement. Story was they'd end up owning the magazine and change the name to Bear Butts.

If there Really IS an 'evolution', Why didn't the bear just use his opposable thumbs to open the door latch?
Oh That's Right; GOD didn't give him any.
What more proof that the Bible is the Direct Infallible Word of GOD do you need?

Trumpit said...

Trump would have no qualms separating a mama bear from her cub. That's what I hate about him. I once took a political science course with a black professor, Mr. Hamilton who talked about the power of incumbency to get reelected. Gee, Mr. Hamilton must be pretty old by now. I hope he was wrong about Mr. Trump's reelection bid. I love bears and gorillas. I'd turn Trump's 18 golf courses into animal wildlife sanctuaries. Each year, there's a new batch of students while the professor is another year older. Maybe medicinal marijuana can fix that to. The word "medicinal" kinda puts a damper on it. Let's just call it "recreational" and not confuse the issue.

Trumpit dropping another turd on the blog

ceowens said...

So Trumpit is a wack-a-doodle. Could she possibly be Laslo, showing the left in its true colors? One thing that throws me, though, is her mother's death by doctor. I have a first person account of that very situation.

Anyway, she should be partially happy that they are closing golf courses in and around North Myrtle Beach. One is slated for 1000 living units and another for 800.

ceowens said...

But, please forebear, they are not for bears.

That's racist. Who the hell cares whether he was black, white, or polka-dot, other than you?

Are we sure Trumpit's posts are meant to be taken literally?
