Fight Against Maturity

Forget pic-a-nik baskets! I’m taking the whole car!

A bear went for a little joyride in the town of Larkspur, Colorado Friday morning when it got into an unlocked car and knocked the gear into neutral, sending it down a hill and knocking over a few trees before coming to a full stop.

The Denver Post reports that an adult black bear got behind the wheel after the driver’s son left a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a stick of deodorant in the car. The door closed behind the bear and as it looked for a way out, the gear shift was bumped into neutral and sent the car rolling 125 feet backwards down a hill.

Many thanks to Wayne for sending me this video link with pictures of the car’s interior and an interview with the owner and his son.
