Bear targets cars in Steamboat neighborhood

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Residents in the area of upper Fish Creek Falls Road are on alert for a bear that has been targeting their cars.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is aware of the issue.

“Everyone needs to remember to lock their vehicles and the main level doors and windows,” said Christy Bubenheim with Parks and Wildlife.

Andy Heppelmann, who lives on Highland Circle, said his neighbor had her unlocked car broken into Sunday night.

The next day she had her car detailed to clean up the mess, but the bear returned Tuesday and targeted the same car.
