Californian Black Bears break into Lexus

If you are staying near mountains in the USA at this time of the year, don’t leave your car unlocked as you could find a bear behind the driver’s seat.

American photographer David Miller filmed two Black Bears at the southern end of Lake Tahoe getting into an open Lexus SUV, and exploring around the interior.

As this time of the year sees the American Black Bear wake up from their hibernation, they come down to find food in quiet green belt-like areas and houses around Lake Tahoe, and these lakeside properties regularly see bears in spring.

The cavalier mammals eat the grass on the front lawns, but according to Toogee Sielsch of the Bear League: “This is their home. They’re moving through their corridors of travel. It’s part of our job to enjoy them being there and try not to bother them.”
