You won’t believe the damage that a black bear did to the interior of a Colorado man’s car after it accidentally locked itself inside the vehicle.

Lawson Yow is currently looking for another vehicle after a black bear totally trashed his car. Yow parked his Honda Element in Crested Butte, Colorado, and, according to a neighbor who witnessed the destruction, a large bear broke into the vehicle and accidentally locked itself inside.

For two hours the bear made mincemeat of the car’s interior before it finally escaped through a window.

“He said the bear was just thrashing around,” Yow said. “The whole car was rocking. The bear was a monster. It was as long as the car is wide.” 

Just look at the devastation the bear inflicted on Yow’s vehicle:

According to Yow, bears breaking into cars is a frequent occurrence in his area, but he’s never seen the kind of devastation his vehicle suffered.
