You may worry about your vehicle getting broken into and having your items rifled through, but sometimes the culprit may only be after your pic-a-nic baskets.

After a number of reports, WildSafeBC is warning the public about the possibility of a bear breaking into your vehicle.

According to officials, some bears across the province have learned that parked vehicles can sometimes harbour tasty treats.

The organization has offered a few tips to help you lower the chances of your vehicle being ransacked by a bear.

  • Keep your doors locked.
  • Never leave food or items that smell like food in your vehicle. This could include wrappers, fast food bags, pizza boxes and other garbage.
  • When camping in a tent, keep your food inside a sealed container inside a locked vehicle.

WildSafeBC emphasized the importance of taking extra precautions when visiting an area with high conflict with bears.
