Bear Dodges Car Theft Rap

Silly bear, you're too young to drive!A bear cub broke into a car in a Denver suburb but became trapped when the door shut behind it. One of the responding officers ("The bear," notes the report, "was as surprised to see the deputies as the deputies were to see the bear") opened the door and the bear bolted off… probably to plan his next heist. It's revolving-door justice out there in Colorado.

This is precisely why I always leave my keys in the car. And a ten-spot, in case the bear needs to go cross the Verrazano Bridge.

Finally, the Awl returns to its niche.

I can't wait for the inevitable "Bear eats Spike Jonze and destroys a vintage video game arcade" story!

That is not a bear, that is an alien.

Actually, last night a scary dude opened my driver side door while I was stopped at a traffic light in Chinatown. It was very much like a bear attack.

God, that photo is a bit scary. Can you imagine coming back to your car and seeing that?

Wouldn't want to get Mauled.

Even worse, can you imagine what the interior of your car is gonna smell like?

It was a meteorology experiment gone awry.

What a terrible year for the Rocky Mountain News to go under.
Are there Colorado bear stories out there we don't even know about?

Species: Ursus recidivist. Coming soon to a juvenile court near you.

After starting the car, I soon realized the bear had changed all my radio presets to country music.

I was just thinking that he couldn't stand that asshole who owned the car blasting Kiss 100 and had to take matters in his own hands.

If he could have only got the car started and up to 88 mph, he would have been home free.
