    This Should Buff Right Out

    Don't leave a sandwich in an unlocked car overnight in bear country.

    And to answer that age-old question...well, technically, it was in the woods.

    Many years ago, I had a buddy that grew up in Big Timber, Montana, and did Summer work in Yellowstone Park. He told the story of having a Summer work superviser that was a a real ogre to work for. He really went out of his way to make life miserable for the kids on his crew.

    Anyway... it seems that around mid-summer, the ogre left his car unlocked, and at the same time a momma bear and her cub were raiding a nearby garbage can. One of the disgruntled workers managed to lure the cub into the ogre's car, using his lunch as bait. As soon as the cub was in the car, the guy slammed the door and ran, leaving a scared cub in the car, and a mad momma outside it.

    Between the cub tearing up the whole inside trying to get out, and momma bear tearing up the outside trying to get to her cub, the car was pretty much demolished.

    I really don't know how true it was, but it sure made a good story the way Epp told it!

    Me thinks you have something here Sherlock, perhaps Mr. adjuster will ask the same questions especially when "I need a new one " is mentioned. Guy was pretty confident in that regard.

    Could have been a set up rolling it down there and leaving something in the car for a bear then closing the door to make the bear go crazy and rip it apart to get out.

    Seems a little on the suspicious side when i think that i cannot get my key out of my car without it going into park.

    Back in the ol country less than $100 would get your car torched if you did not like it or could not pay for it. But the adjusters got wise to the issue. People had generally already tried selling the vehicle in the papers and then all calls to the insurance co were recorded and reviewed. Wife can tell a few stories in this regard. "people are funny critters" eh Frank.
    cheers

    Photo of the bear in that article.

    Quote:
    "A Colorado Division of Wildlife spokesman said that it is common for bears to enter cars or even houses in search of food.
    'It happens all the time' he stated, 'They're very smart.' "

    I'm guessing the bear was strong enough to muscle the gear shift past the safety interlocks.
