A bear hot on the scent of a peanut butter sandwich ended up sandwiched in the front seat of a Toyota Corolla in Colorado, shifting the car into neutral and sending it rolling in the process, the Associated Press reported. The bear climbed into the 2007 Toyota belonging to 17-year-old Ben Story of Larkspur, Colo., in the early morning hours of July 23, honked the horn and ended up rolling the car over 100 feet, coming to a stop in a nearby thicket.
Story believes a peanut butter sandwich he left in the backseat is what attracted the bear to his car. Once the car rolled to a stop, the door shut, trapping the bear inside. Deputies freed the bear by opening the door with a rope. Once it was open, the bear ran back into the woods.
Story says the bear "trashed" the interior of his car and left a "present" on the driver’s seat.
"A nice pile, actually," added his dad, Ralph. "Something to remember."
