Grizzly Trashes Toyota SUV

“There are no scratches on the outside of this car, but the vehicle is totaled!

A man in Waterton Park, (south of Calgary), came out to find the inside of his 18 month old Toyota Sequoia trashed.

A grizzly bear had somehow got a door open. Once inside it got trapped when the door shut behind him, probably by the wind.

The Toyota was the Platinum edition, all the door panels were ripped off, the head-liner torn to pieces, all headrests, the leather seats, the dash shredded. The steering column was twisted sideways. Two of the six airbags went off, the other four the bear ripped to pieces.…” From yougottobekidding

    At least the grizzly was gone when he came back and opened the door! Would have been quite a problem if he had settled down and gone to sleep in there.

    Reminds me of back in the 70s we had a window taken out by a bear in Yosemite while we were out backpacking. He was after a jar of peanut butter that had rolled unawares under the seats.

    I see this all the time in Yosemite.Sometimes they even go after tooth paste.

  3. I'll bet the bear's attitude wasn't improved any when the two airbags went "bang!"
