Carrie Watts said a black bear climbed into her vehicle after she left her windows down to combat the heat while parked along Lake Burton in Rabun County, according to WSB-TV.

The black bear smelled her lunch on the van’s seat and climbed in through a window to get it, WSB reported.

The bear ate the lunch, which Watts said consisted of a sandwich, chips and a cookie.

She also said the animal ripped up her children’s car seats and demolished a pile of paper work.

Watts said she tried to scare the bear out of the car with her car alarm and even banged on pots and pans, but the noise didn’t work.
