Kicker: Bear break-in

NICK EICHER, HOST: Bear watching is a summer pastime in some rural parts of the country.

AUDIO: Hey, come on, watch the paint job. Hey, shoo! (roar) Look at the size of those teeth. Pretty big.

But Linda Morad in Canton, Connecticut was house-sitting two weeks ago when the headlights on her Subaru in the driveway kept flashing and the horn honking. She called police and said someone was in her car.

And that was true, but it wasn’t a someone—it was a bear, and he was destroying the inside of that car, with the windows up.

Bears are quite dextrous so it’s likely the bear opened the door.

And police shooed the furry vandal away— but about that car? It was a total loss.

It’s always a good idea to lock your car.
