When the snow falls then melts in the mountains of Colorado this time of year, the Grand County Sheriff’s Department usually sees an uptick in calls relating to bears.
“As fall sets on us, there are a lot of bears in our area,” Sheriff Schroetlin said.
But a call to deputies on Saturday was a little different than most.
A 200 pound black bear got inside Danny Archer’s car and accidently got carried away.
“The bear put the car in neutral and it rolled back across the street into a spruce tree,” Archer said.
