LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KGTV) -- Video shows a bear opening the door of a car at Lake Tahoe before taking something out of the back seat.

The video, which was captured on security footage, shows the bear standing on its hind legs and opening the door with its paw.

The bear can then be seen crawling into the back seat and digging around for a few seconds before climbing out with a bag of food.

The renters of the home sent the homeowners the video. The owners, who are Airbnb hosts, say they were surprised to see the bear since they take precautions to keep their trash and other items secure.
