Grizzly Gets Locked In Toyota
There are no scratches on the outside, but the vehicle is totaled.

Below is the story and the pics.

A Man in Waterton, came out to find the inside of his 18 month old Toyota Sequoia trashed.

A grizzly bear had somehow got a door open (easy considering the way the handles are) and once inside got trapped when the door shut behind him. Probably by the wind.

The Toyota was a platinum edition, all the door panels were ripped off, the headliner torn to pieces, all headrests, the leather seats, the dash shredded.

The steering column was twisted sideways. Two of the six airbags went off, the other four the bear ripped to pieces.
You can imagine a trapped grizzly being hit with an airbag in an enclosed space must have figured he was in for the fight of his life.

When the bear ripped off the door panels he clawed all the wiring harnesses out.
Toyota figures every wire he pulled or clawed at resulted in bells, voices or sparks.

The head mechanic at Calgary Toyota doubted if they had the expertise to put it back together.

To add insult to injury the bear took a big dump in the back of the SUV and then broke out the rear window.
Fish and wildlife officers have inspected the damage and figure it was a 3 year old griz.

From blood left behind they are doing DNA.

The vehicle has been written off, cost new over 70,000 they stopped counting repair costs at 60,000.







So you think you might go bear hunting? Let me know how that goes if you do.
