Bear Tries to Stow Away in Truck

Occurred on April 16, 2019 / Anchorage, Alaska, USA

Info from Licensor: "I was on my way to a creek to photograph Harlequin ducks when I saw the bear in the bushes on the side of the road by a construction site. I stopped to see if I could get some photos of the bear. The bear came out of the woods and hopped up into the bed of the truck where he checked out a tool box. Finding no food in the tool box, the bear moved on to the top of the truck. He then noticed that the driver’s side window was rolled down just a bit; he climbed into the truck through the window. At that point, I informed the crew that the bear was inside their work truck. One of the crew members got onto the forks of their forklift and had the driver position him by the truck so he could open the door and let the bear out. The bear finally vacated the truck through the window."
