Bear steals carA bear stole a car, put it into reverse gear and crashed it into a front porch.
The beast climbed in the vehicle outside a Lake Tahoe cabin and began struggling to get out before he managed to put the motor in reverse.
Owner of the car Cece McCarthy said: "By the time he got that car in gear he was desperate. He did steal our car."
Her son Dylan described the incident, adding: "The chaos of him thrashing around inside the car.
"He pulled back the gear shift, which is a pretty hard task to do."
The beast crashed the vehicle into a nearby front porch but he vanished before police arrived at the scene.
