Watch: Bear ravages car interior while searching for peanut candy

A curious, and most likely hungry, bear destroyed the interior of a parked car after the owners left some Peanut M&M’s inside. 

Video posted on X (formerly known as Twitter) by Colorado Parks and Wildlife, shows a bear inside a car before a park officer opens the passenger door to set it free. 

The black bear makes a run for it as the officer is heard making some noises to scare the animal away. 

The interior of the car was completely ravaged.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife revealed in a thread that the car owners had forgotten a pack of Peanut M&M’s in the vehicle, which attracted the bear. 

"Black bears are curious, intelligent, and very resourceful; they will explore all possible food sources," the Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminded Coloradans and visitors.
