BRECKENRIDGE, Co. (WTAJ) — A Colorado woman learned the hard way that real bears love gummy bears.
Almost every inch inside Cate Siegel’s Subaru Forester was destroyed by a hungry bear looking for the tasty treats inside.
He must have just got in, got up and around and sat in the backseat and left a little surprise in the backseat.”

Cate Siegel was headed to work on Thursday morning when she walked outside to find both her car door and garage door open.
“There was a garage opener in the car and he swiped that, must have stepped on it, opened the garage door but luckily the trash had just been taken out,” said Siegel.
The bear made its way through her neighborhood, rummaging through trash and then into her car for a sweet treat.
Gummy bears! His own kind, I guess.”
According to Siegel, the candy was in a sealed bag as a part of a gift basket from an event the night before.
Living in the mountains, Siegel is always cautious about locking up trash and her doors, but in this instance, she says she let her guard down.
