WINTHROP, Wash. — A black bear in a wooded area of north-central Washington looked for a way into an occupied car, even climbing up on the hood, frightening the woman inside. And it was all caught on video.
The bear encounter occurred about 5 p.m. on Aug. 27 just off Wolf Creek Road, about 6 miles northwest of Winthrop.
After looking for ways to open the side doors of the vehicle, the bear lumbered up on the hood. “Oh, my God, a bear’s on the car,” the woman inside the vehicle exclaimed.
But before long, as the woman nervously giggled, the bear turned and decided to try to get down.
“Oh, my God, there’s a bear butt,” the woman said.
Viewer Kyle Northcott provided the video of the incident.
