A family who heard a honking horn and doors slamming in Southwest Florida on Monday didn’t expect a pack of bears to be the surprising culprits.

After calling the sheriff’s office to find out what was causing the commotion around 11:45 p.m., authorities discovered a family of bears outside their home near Naples.

“These weren’t your average intruders,” the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post Tuesday.



At least one of the bears had entered the truck and caused a significant amount of damage to the interior.

The family was afraid someone was trying to break in or lure them outside, according to the sheriff’s department.

After deputies arrived, “the bears left the area,“ and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was contacted.

Even after getting busted, the bears returned to the scene of the crime this morning.
