    Two bears ransacked this B.C. family’s SUV. Dad, mom, kids and dogs slept through it all

    How to Adjust a Garage Door Gap

    As Sean McQuillan lay sleeping next to his wife around 3 a.m., two pugs dozing at the end of the bed, his phone started to buzz with call after call. A trio of RCMP cruisers soon pulled up in front of the family home in Coquitlam, B.C. Pajama-clad neighbours stood groggy but wide-eyed at their windows, filming the reason for it all.

    Two gangly black bears were rummaging through the McQuillan’s grey Chevy Tahoe, which was parked in their driveway. The driver’s side and rear passenger doors were flung open as the animals worked under the streetlight.

    McQuillan, his wife, their two young children and both dogs missed the entire thing.

    “They sleep blissfully through this entire ordeal, as [did] we,” McQuillan said, referring to pugs Winston and Hannah.

    Bears likely in search of food

    McQuillan detailed the story on Twitter early Friday.

    He and RCMP believe the two bears got into his unlocked car in search of food — particularly, McQuillan suspects, the scraps his two-and-a-half-year-old son, Maverick, had chucked all over the back seat.

    No one was hurt, but the animals left behind dusty paw prints, a mangled carseat and the lingering odour of bear — which McQuillan described as being “like much thicker wet-dog smell.” 

    Neighbours who heard the commotion tried repeatedly to reach the family by phone and through a neighbourhood WhatsApp group. One witness saw the garage door was also wide open and called police.
