Here is a couple of pictures on a GMC Yukon that came into the Dealership yesterday-a Bear got inside and somehow the Door closed behind him-needless to say, he wasn't a happy Bear and was trying to find a way out-he defecated all over inside, and pulled the Top Bows down-the unit was totalled today-
Wow. I can see why they just totaled that thing out. Looks like that was one angry bear. And I bet it didn't smell so good in there either.
As Dan TwoLakes mentioned we have black bears wandering around all over up here in the northwoods of Wisconsin. Here are a couple shots of a momma and her cubs up on our front deck. They usually only get this close to the house if we have bird feeders up or happen to have some other food source left out on the table. But they can be pretty persistent. I've found them sleeping under our porch (nice and cool spot) and I have video from a few years ago where a mother was laying on her back nursing her cubs not five feet from the house. I also have a Coleman cooler with holes in the lid where a bear ran it's claws right through the plastic to open it up and see what was inside. Sort of the Edward Scissorshand effect.
Black bears are pretty docile, but I wouldn't want to trap one in my car. When they panic they can do some serious damage.
I had a bear on my deck late one night, and when I turned on the deck light, expecting to chase a raccoon out of the feeder, there was a 250 pound bear slurping up the contents of a hummingbird feeder. I scared it, and it took one swipe at the 1/4" thick lattice work on my deck railing and turned it into toothpicks. It went straight out the hole it made and down the corner post. I just saw one crossing the road yesterday morning on the way to work.
