Aug. 2 (UPI) -- A North Carolina teen captured video of a bear opening the door to his parents' car and climbing into the back seat.
The video, recorded by Asheville resident Ethan Gilliam, shows the bear examining some trash cans before turning its attention to the car.
The bruin stands on its back legs and uses one of its front paws to open the back door.
The bear then climbs into the back seat, eliciting shouts of surprise from behind the camera.
"This bear's in your car!" the teenager shouts. "It's inside the car!"
Ethan's father, Hank Gilliam, said the video was filmed on a Monday, when bears in the area are more active due to garbage pickup taking place the following morning.
The family said the bear spent only moments inside the vehicle and did not cause any serious damage, unlike another bear that recently broke into an Asheville SUV and completely destroyed the interior.
