Bear Steals Fritos in Estes Park

Bear antics have sure kept us chuckling this summer.  There were the bears who got stuck in a bathroom  last month and just last week a bear walked into a bar. We know they are dangerous but amusing none the less.

Wildlife officials say a bear climbed into the trunk of car while a woman was unloading her groceries Thursday in Estes Park and ate two bags of Fritos. It happened in the 5700 block of Highway 7

The bear got into the Fritos and washed them down with a bottle of water.

The bear got out of the trunk while the woman was inside her home. The bear came back for seconds. But the woman blew an air horn, which scared the bear away. The bear was gone by the time wildlife officials arrived.  9News has more on this story.
