Dragon proof but not Grizzly proof

Got this in an email

Quote:
There are no scratches on the outside of this car, 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.

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!
He must have figured he was in for the fight of his life ...and by the looks of this car, he won the fight.

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

The head mechanic at Calgary Toyota doubted if they had the expertise to put this vehicle back together,
even if they had enough parts to do it. And, 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.

The vehicle has been written off by the insurance company.

The cost new was over $70,000, and they stopped counting repair costs at $60,000+.

The bear "somehow" got in.

As someone who has been in plenty of bear country, allow me to elucidate: Bears can easily rip the doors right off motor vehicles. This is actually a big problem in well traveled national parks like Yosemite and Yellowstone.

If a bear wants something in your vehicle, it's coming in.
