  • Day before, CPW warned there' been several reports of bears getting into cars 
  • It told residents to lock their cars and keep any food or drinks out of plain sight  

One Colorado resident woke up to an unbearable surprise after realizing he hadn't locked his car overnight. 

It wasn't a thief that had broken inside, and nothing had been stolen. 

But the interior was almost completely unrecognizable, thanks to one very hungry bear. 

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) posted a video of the car, which had been parked in front of a home in Estes Park, on its Facebook page on Friday.

It showed that the interior of the car had been completely ripped to shreds, with the seats torn up so badly that the foam stuffing was coming out. 

The driver side door was also completely destroyed and the ceiling of the car had been pulled down as well.  

CPW revealed that this was actually the second bear break-in to occur that very  night. 

'This video from last night's incident shows what can happen to your vehicle if you leave your car doors unlocked,' the caption read.

'Bears are exceptionally smart, which means us humans have to be exceptionally Bear Smart!' 

Just the day before, CPW revealed there had been several reports of bears getting into cars in the past two weeks in Estes Park, which is 40 miles north of Boulder. 

'If you live or visit in bear country, please double check EVERY evening that your car doors/windows are LOCKED and completely closed,' it warned in the caption. 

'Also be sure to keep your car clean. No visible soft drink cups in the cup holder and no food or groceries in plain view from the car windows.'

'Please do your part to prevent bears learning this behavior and help keep them WILD.' 

Black bears in Colorado are known for being 'curious, intelligent, and very resourceful,' according to the CPW website. 

These bears will explore 'all possible food sources' and if they find any near a home, camp, or car, they'll come back looking for more. 

'Bears will work hard to get the calories they need, and can easily damage property, vehicles, and homes,' it warns. 

'Bears that become aggressive in their pursuit of an easy meal must often be destroyed.' 

'Every time we’re forced to destroy a bear, it's not just the bear that loses. We all lose a little piece of the wildness that makes Colorado so special.'
