BIG CANOE, Ga. — It’s not unheard of for animals to “hitch a ride” on – and even in – vehicles, but having one this large hop into the passenger seat isn’t quite as common.
Still, that’s exactly what a Georgia business owner found when he walked out to a work truck on the job in late July.
Gilbert Simpson watched in surprise as a black bear climbed into the window of the company truck and proceeded to drink all the grape sodas stored in the vehicle.
She then proceeded to enter and exit the vehicle several times, Simpson said, delivering food to her cubs.
Unfortunately for work crews, the cubs’ grub was originally their lunch. Simpson said that no damage was done during the surprise foraging and that the bear left when the food was gone.
