Wild bear gets stuck in ute

A brazen bear’s antics have stunned passers-by after it casually opened a ute door and clambered behind the wheel.

The wild creature was seen strolling around a neighbourhood by a father and daughter driving through South Lake Tahoe in California. 

The bear hopped into the vehicle, which was parked on a private driveway, and became trapped inside after it closed the door.

Footage of the amusing incident appeared on TikTok this month and shows the father alerted the ute’s owner who then bravely opened the driver’s door for the furry beast to escape.
