If you've ever doubted the old adage that you should be careful what you wish for, you may want to have a word with one man who was desperately hoping to see a bear while visiting Tennessee. His wish did in fact come true, but under some rather, uh, unexpected circumstances. He caught a whole family of curious hirsute four-pawed beasts climbing into his car, and trying to drive it.
Chad Morris, a barber from Kentucky, was visiting Gatlinburg, Tennessee last week and told his friends one of his goals was to see a bear while he was there. He didn't have to look very hard to find one, because at one point he discovered a trio of black bear cubs climbing through the driver's side window of his parked car. He got a close enough look to snap a few photos, and noticed they were lounging around inside, acting as if they were getting ready to take it for a spin. He made the wise decision to keep a safe distance, though, after spotting the cub's mom lurking nearby.
“I was telling my friends, I want to see a bear, I want to see a bear you know?" Morris said in an interview with NBC affiliate WFIE. "Been lifting weights a little bit, want to see a bear, tussle with a bear and it was like well, you get four on one, now what do you wanna do big boy? And I was like nah, I’ll pass.”
