This Week in Neature: Bear vs. Subaru????

It’s time to face the facts: bears are evolving and are probably going to take over the world as the new dominant species. This summer, we’ve seen them opening car doors, walking on their hind legs, cooking with Jetboils, kayaking down the Snake River… and then there’s this one, which managed to get itself locked inside of a vehicle.

So here’s the question: what the hell happens when you stick a black bear inside a station wagon?

Answer: Complete. Subaru. Carnage.

When 17-year-old Annie Bruecker got the car a few months ago to drive to her summer job, she definitely wasn't expecting this. “I honestly could not tell you how he got in,” she told ABC 7 Denver.

“No windows were broken. The door handles weren’t the kind you lift up. And yet somehow this medium-sized bear managed to open a door, crawl inside and close the door behind him,” the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department said in a statement. “Deputies could tell by all the moisture on the windows that he’d clearly been inside for a while.

After being freed from the car it had just disemboweled, the bear high tails it back to the woods.

“Oh my,” a Deputy says, peering into the innocent adventure mobile.

If you live in bear country, own a Subaru (which you probably do), and leave food in your car with the doors unlocked... well, now you know what'll happen.

Here’s What it’s Like to be Caught in a Bison Stampede

No, thank you. This video is a great reminder of how I never want to be caught in a bison stampede. It is unknown what caused this tsunami wave of fuzzy Prius-sized mammals to charge through the Yellowstone National Park traffic. My guess is that a middle-aged woman with an iPad spooked them while trying to get photos for family back home. Damn it, Karen, why can’t you just stay on the boardwalk?! Jokes aside, we’re glad that no one was hurt from this uncomfortably close wildlife

Make a Plan to Vote with Protect Our Winters

If we want to protect the places we love—our mountains, forests, deserts, or oceans—it starts by voting. Sounds simple, right? However, our track record isn’t too great: Thirty-five percent of 18-29-year-olds, who said they “definitely voted” in the 2014 midterm election, in fact, didn't actually vote. Yikes. We can do better this November and Protect Our Winters wants to make the process as easy as possible. RELATED: Make a Plan to Vote with Protect Our Winters Protect Our Winters’ Make A
