Default OT..bear near clingmans yesterday

yesterday...ranger drives by convertible parked at trailhead....he looks ...drives by and turns around to verify his vision was ok...gets back to car and there is a bear head sticking out the closed top of the car.....hiker had left car and gone off, leaving food in the back set....bear, having a good nose and some claws, breaks in and is eating the food...ranger calls for assitance...about this time the hiker, having cut his o/n short by a day, comes upon the scene...bear will be relocated...hiker will be reeducated

Bears are pretty smart I wouldn't put it past this bear to teach his offspring how to cut through the top and get into convertibles. Some others see it, take note, and you have a full on epedimic of convertible slash and grabs going on.
