Opening doors isn't what it used to be for Tahoe bears.

It's apparently easier than ever, according to this video posted to Instagram by Bonnie Lofstedt. She told CBS13 in Sacramento the incident happened Thursday night at her home in Tahoe City. The crafty bear's brazen act was captured by a security camera pointed at her driveway.

Footage shows the animal easily opening the door of her friend’s SUV and rummaging through items in the vehicle before Lofstedt herself scared the bear away.

It left and then came back a short time later to grab a cooler still on the ground.
