Here’s a good reason to never leave food in your car.

A mama bear and her cubs are together again after the parent bear trapped herself in a car in Colorado. The bear apparently went inside the car looking for food and the door shut behind her.

The Garfield County Sheriff’s deputy decided to free the animal by opening the driver’s side door, but failed when the bear accidentally closed the door again. A second attempt by the officer was successful and mama bear and her cubs were reunited.

The sheriff’s office is warning people not to leave food in their car for obvious reasons. The interior of the car was shredded and gutted by the bruin.
