Matt Peterson, a van driver, who was filming a bear wandering around the parked cars near the woods was surprised when the animal casually got into one of the vehicles. What was more startling was when it did so by simply opening the door with its paws.

In another incident in the run-up to the Independence Day, two persons were shot dead and six injured in indiscriminate firing by suspected ULFA-Independent militants at Bahbon village in this upper Assam's district on Friday evening, police said.
A group of five armed militants of the anti-talk ULFA faction came to the house of Arvind Shah, a small trader, of the village under Philobari police station, and opened fire at some people sitting outside around 7.30 pm, they said.
DIG Bishnu Prasad Rabha said two persons were killed in the firing. They have been identified as Kishori Teli and Rajesh Shah.
The six injured were shifted to Assam Medical College Hospital in neighbouring Dibrugarh district.
Police and paramilitary forces have been deployed and security measures tightened in the district, officials said.
On Thursday in Philobari, suspected ULFA-I militants had exploded an improvised explosive devise (IED) in a drain near Badalbheta Tea Estate but none was injured.
Assam has witnessed intensified militant violence in the last one week. 14 people were killed and over 20 injured by heavily-armed NDFB (Songbijit) insurgents at Balajan in Assam's Kokrajhar district on August 5.
