PAISLEY, Fla. – A family was on vacation at the Ocala National Forest when a bear got trapped in their car.

The car was unlocked and it’s believed the bear’s paw got caught in the handle when it was trying to climb on top of the vehicle.

The door opened and the bear got inside.

Once there, the bear’s rocking may have caused the door to shut and the automatic locks trapped it inside where the destruction began.

The car was left in shambles and now the family is fighting with their insurance company to get the car replaced.
