Yikes! Bear locks himself inside Virginia family’s SUV

SALEM, VA (WSLS) — A Salem, Virginia family had an unusual start to their Thursday morning after they found a bear in their car.

Ryan McClanahan was getting ready for work when he heard honking from his car.

He looked out the window and saw it shaking and heard noises coming from the Honda Pilot. McClanahan said his wife called the police for help.

“The bear has somehow gotten inside the car and locked it back so all the doors were closed,” said Ryan McClanahan.

“The bear is laying down on the arm rest. He is just laying down. The car is all fogged up. You can see damage from inside the car, but he’s just sitting there looking at you just hanging out and tired and worn out,” said Thayer.

McClanahan tells NBC affiliate WSLS-TV he let the bear out of the car, but not before the animal caused significant damage.
