Hungry bear tears apart cars to reach lip gloss tube inside

A ravenous bear tore through two cars in Colorado – in a bid to reach the lip gloss that was left inside.

Searching for a possible food source, the bear was enticed by the scent of the lip gloss and broke into the vehicles on Friday, ripping the seats to pieces and leaving items inside in a state of disarray.

The incident was subsequently reported to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, who took to Twitter to alert the public.

They wrote: “Bears know how to open car doors. There was no food/trash left inside here, but there was lip gloss. Its scent was enough to entice the bear to check it out. Keep unwanted guests out of your cars by locking the doors & removing anything with a scent.”

The aftermath of the bear’s break-in

According to local media, non-food items left in cars including sunscreen, lip balm, creams and air fresheners can lure bears to attempt to break in to the vehicle.

Bears have even been known to break into houses, destroying furniture and other interiors while they search for a food source.

Following this incident, wildlife officials are urging residents to keep any and all attractants secure – and have stressed that bears shouldn’t be eating from bins, bird feeders or other human-provided food sources around houses and businesses.

“Every time a bear gets a treat, a bird feeder, a hummingbird feeder, or trash, it teaches the bear that people mean food,” said Mark Lamb, a manager of Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

He continued: “People who think that it’s one time, no big deal, are totally wrong. It is a big deal when you compound that ‘one time’ with how many ‘one timers’ they get from your neighbors, too. It adds up.”

The organisation has received reports of bear activity in 16 counties this year alone, according to a news release.
