CONIFER, Colo. – The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is warning people about leaving their cars unlocked after several incidents, including one caught on video, in which bears have gotten into vehicles.

The sheriff’s office posted video on Facebook that showed deputies using a rope to open a car door in Conifer on Monday. A black bear then exits the car and runs off.

The deputy recording the scene then shows the interior of the car, which was torn to shreds. The bear also left behind a half-eaten banana.

The sheriff’s office said no humans or bears were hurt.
