There are no scratches on the outside of this car, but the vehicle is totaled!

grizzly1A man in Waterton Park, (south of Calgary), came out to find
the inside of his 18 month old Toyota Sequoia trashed.

A grizzly bear had somehow got a door open.
Once inside it got trapped when the door shut behind him,

probably by the wind.

The Toyota was the Platinum edition, all the door panels were
ripped off, the head-liner torn to pieces, all headrests, the
leather seats, the dash shredded.
The steering column was twisted Sideways. Two of the six

airbags went off, the other four the bear ripped to pieces.

You can imagine a trapped grizzly being hit with an airbag in
an enclosed space!
He must have figured he was in for the fight of his life, and by

the looks of this car, he won the fight.

the wiring harnesses out.
Toyota figures every wire he pulled or clawed at resulted in

alarm bells, voices or sparks.

The head mechanic at Calgary Toyota doubted if they had
the expertise to put this vehicle back together, even if they
had enough parts to do it. And, to add insult to injury, the
bear took a big Dump in the back of the SUV . . . and then
broke out the rear window. (So a bear doesn’t always shit in the woods.)

Fish and wildlife officers have inspected the damage and figure
it was a 3 year old Grizzly.

The vehicle has been written off by the insurance company.
The cost of this fully optioned vehicle new was over $70,000,

and they stopped counting the repair costs at $60,000 plus.
