The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office in Colorado posted a video on Facebook that shows what can happen when a car is left unlocked and a bruin smells treats inside.

An officer used a rope to open the door and awaken the bear, which seemed to enjoy the food contents of a small station wagon before taking a nap. A half-eaten banana was left behind as the bear ran off into the woods.

The sheriff's office wrote it's "pawsitively sure" locking the door reduces the chances of losing important items and having a vehicle trashed.
