IT WAS A CASE of not quite so gentle Ben, but there’s nothing funny about a crashed car, unless that car was crashed by a joyriding bear of course.

17-year-old Denver teen, Ben was shocked to find that his car was no longer parked in the driveway, where he had left it. Instead the car was at the bottom of the hill, having rolled down a slope and crashed into some trees.

Trapped inside was the culprit – a giant bear with teeth bared and claws, who was tearing through the Toyota’s interior.

Reuters is reporting that the bear was trapped for two hours before Police managed to release the animal, who ran off into an nearby wood.

Ben and his sister Becky said the bear was likely lured into the car by a certain scintillating scent.

“There was a peanut butter sandwich in the back seat,” Ben told reporters, adding that his car was ruined.
