Taylor Hawkins sent KFSN a video of just that happening on Thursday afternoon.
Hawkins was on her way to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park when she had stopped in a long line of vehicles.
That’s when a bear sauntered over to the car right in front of hers, took a look at the trunk, and then clambered up on top of it.
Seconds later, it got spooked, jumped down and ran off.
But it didn’t go far.
The unusually fearless – or unusually hungry – bear stopped on the grass just near the edge of the road and looked back at the car for a few seconds.
Hawkins recorded the whole encounter on her phone. She says no one was hurt in the incident.
