Yeah, bear damage is not uncommon around here either, and they can open car doors just fine unless they're locked too.
The good news is that here in Colorado the state pays restitution for wildlife damage. Not long ago we had a bowhunter attacked by a bear which bit a decent sized chunk out of the guy's rear end and just about totally devoured his bow and arrows.
He got a new one courtesy of the Division of Wildlife.
Bow, that is, not rear end.
This I can tell you with absolute authority. You do not want a bear in your kitchen.
