Bear ransacks company’s Suburban in Colorado

Moving Mountains owner Robin Craigen says when the employees returned to the vehicle, they noticed a black bear face staring at them from inside it

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS | A Steamboat Springs lodging company is down one Suburban after a bear ransacked the vehicle.

The Steamboat Pilot & Today reports (http://bit.ly/2tTY9kT ) the vehicle was left unlocked on Thursday by housekeepers. Moving Mountains owner Robin Craigen says when the employees returned to the vehicle, they noticed a black bear face staring at them from inside it.

Witnesses believe the bear broke into the vehicle and then the door closed behind it.

Craigen says a maintenance worker made a “bad choice” to open a vehicle door and let the bear out, instead of calling Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers.

Craigen says the 2001 Suburban might be totaled.
