The smell of peanut butter lured a black bear into the open door of a Toyota near Denver, Colo. Once inside the car, the bear knocked the gearshift into neutral, sending the automobile rolling down a slope and into some trees.
The accident left the car horn blaring, which grabbed the attention of owner Ben Story and his family. When the Story family found the car, they also discovered the bear trapped inside, ripping apart the car’s interior. The black bear spent two hours trapped in the Toyota. Police were finally able to release the bear, who then darted into the woods.
Ben Story had left a peanut butter sandwich in the backseat. His car is now ruined.
