Video from my front camera at the Tahoe house early yesterday morning catches a bear checking the car doors of both Mark and Lindsay’s cars in the driveway. Unfortunately my video stops short of showing how they try to pull on the door handles. Lindsay noticed somebody’s car down the street appeared to have been opened up and searched by a bear that morning. Matt went out the previous morning to find both of his passenger side doors wide open but nothing ransacked. Last year, Troy found all four doors of his extended cab pickup truck open in the driveway with dirty paw prints over everything. Looks like even if you don’t leave any food or trash in your car, this bear goes around checking for unlocked doors!
And on a related note, the Placer County Sheriff recently helped this crying cub bear get out of a trash dumpster:
