The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office helped free a bear that locked itself inside a Subaru in Conifer.
“We’ve often warned that leaving your car unlocked makes it easier for thieves to steal items, but as we’ve now seen twice this past week, it also makes it easier for bears to climb in and make themselves at home,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post.
