Lured by Girl Scout cookies and McDonald’s, bears break into Florida woman’s pickup, destroy interior

When a Florida family heard horn honking and vehicle doors slamming repeatedly outside their home at about midnight Monday, they feared intruders.

They were correct, but it wasn’t exactly what they thought. It was a group of bears ransacking Kylie Johnson’s Ford F-150 pickup truck, ripping the interior to shreds and shattering the glass of the sunroof.bears

“It’s 12am, the car horn starts blaring outside we freak out the car doors are open outside (wtf) so we call 911,” Johnson posted on Facebook along with a photo and video of her trashed truck. “They send out 4 cars and a helicopter, only for the dispatcher to tell me ‘Ma’am, it’s a family affair of bears.”

Johnson thinks the hungry scavengers may have been lured by crumbs from her 3-year-old son’s McDonald’s or Chick-fil-A drive-thru meals, or by the lingering scent of two boxes of Tagalongs Girl Scout cookies that she’d had in her center console, she told Fox 4 News.

It happened at about 11:45 pm in a heavily wooded area of rural Collier County in southwest Florida, about 18 miles east of Naples, near the edge of the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge.
