Video posted to the I Love Old Forge Facebook on Monday shows a very clever mama bear breaking into an unlocked mini-van in the Hollywood Hills area of Old Forge up in the Adirondacks.  Watch how the bear easily unlocks the door using her teeth and proceeds to rummage around for a bit before she's joined in her pursuit of food and mischief by her four cubs.  

The I Love Old Forge Facebook page had this message for folks who live or plan on  heading up there:

Burglary Alert!!!!! This is exactly why we should always lock our doors and never leave food in the car in the Adirondacks... Bears are very smart and clever and can open car doors just as fast as humans ... this was in Hollywood Hills area this morning

 

According to OldForgeNy.com , Old Forge is “Adirondack Base Camp” for visitors who launch out near and far seeking everything from serenity to adventure. It is the largest hamlet in historic Town of Webb, which includes Eagle Bay, Big Moose and Stillwater. From here, you can explore the Central Adirondack region and all of the Adirondack Park
