The curious bear opened the door handle using both paws.
A wild bear has been caught opening the door of a parked car with ease and then casually walking away leaving the door wide open.
The moment was captured on CCTV footage taken from South Lake Tahoe in California.
At first, the bear appears to wander around on settled snow before making its way towards the white vehicle.
It then grabs onto the door handle with both paws, looks away, and then back towards the car before opening the door.
As the car’s interior light comes on, the bear appears to briefly look inside before turning and leaving the property.
