DURANGO, Colo. (CBS)—A bear in Southwest Colorado reportedly broke into an SUV, released the parking brake and then defecated inside after crashing into a mailbox,” according to the Durango Hearald.

It happened last week when Ron Cornelius woke up to a Subaru in his yard.

“Usually, I don’t get up at 5 o’clock unless there is a bear driving a car down the street,” Cornelius told the Durango.

Cornelius believes the car rolled backward from a neighbor’s home into Cornelius’ mailbox.

La Plata County Sheriff’s Office deputies determined a bear was to blame and added that it pooped in the car — likely because it was nervous.
