Lake Tahoe Bear Trapped In Car Destroys Car Interior

TAHOE VISTA (CBS13) – Never forget, Tahoe is bear country.

It's the time of year when bears are getting ready for hibernation. What this means is that hungry bears are out looking for any scraps they can find.

Unfortunately for one car owner in Tahoe Vista, near Kings Beach, a bear found itself stuck inside after scrounging for some grub.

Deputies were able to free the bear and send it on its way, but not before it tore up the inside of the car.

The incident should be a good reminder for people to never leave food in their cars when up in Tahoe.
