“This mama bear couldn’t huff and puff and blow out a North Carolina family’s SUV window – but she finally managed to break through the windshield about six hours after getting stuck inside.
Ashely McGowin awoke early Thursday and noticed that her hazard lights were blinking when she let her dogs outside, WLOS reported.
“They started barking as if something was out in the yard,” McGowin told the news outlet.
She then noticed that a large black bear was inside her vehicle and took video of the strange sight.
“I captured a few moments after the mom [bear] punched through my front windshield,” McGowin said after watching the animal crawling through the window, climbing on top of the vehicle and running away with her cubs.”

The broken windshield is the least of the concerns regarding damage to this vehicle. Pictures show a completely mangled interior as the bear was trapped for hours inside the car. On a funny side note, a young family member’s homework was left in the car that was also destroyed. At least the excuse for not turning it up, as wild as it is, wasn’t made up!
