B.C. gangster bear ravages car, shits inside

A Tofino woman thought her vehicle was malfunctioning when the horn and lights started going off, but instead there was a surprise waiting. Stephanie Hannay first heard her vehicle horn sounding around 10:30 p.m. Saturday outside her home. When she peeked outside, everything seemed normal. “I went to bed and was woken up at 2 a.m. by the horn going off again,” she said. She grabbed her keys and went to see what was going on. “I opened the driver-side door and this head pops out in the back seat and it’s just a bear. I couldn’t believe it.” Shitting her pants, she ran back inside. A conservation officer later opened the hatch to her vehicle and the bear made his escape. Conservation officer Sgt. Stuart Bates believes the same bear has damaged 12 other vehicles over the last six weeks.
“We do have a bear that about six weeks ago got into a car and got some food and has since then learned to test every car it comes across,” Bates said, adding bears will destroy vehicles from the inside out. After 3 hours confinement a bear has got to go somewhere.
