Nov. 20 (UPI) -- A North Carolina teenager captured video of a family of bears that broke into her Toyota Prius and ate 49 chocolate bars she was selling for a fundraiser.

Lilly Thurmond, 16, said she was at her Asheville home Sunday evening when she saw the mother bear and three cubs walk up her driveway.


Thurmond said she noticed moments later that the animals had opened the door to her car.

"I turned my head, and I saw the car door is open," Thurmond told WLOS-TV. "I could hear growling and stuff."

Thurmond filmed as the bears pigged out on the fundraiser chocolate in the vehicle.

She said the bears ate 49 of the candy bars, leaving only a single dark chocolate bar untouched.
