Bear opens motorist's car door in California

Terrifying footage of a bear opening a couple's car door twice as they stopped to observe the animal.

The video, captured in California, shows the bear standing on its hind legs before it opens the helpless couple's car door.

The filmer is then forced to whistle to make the bear run away, however, it open the door a second time before the car owner drives off.

"We were about to go hiking then this bear block our path so we jumped in the car and tried to scare it off. The elderly couple just sat there taking pictures," the filmer wrote about his experience.
