FAIRMONT HOT SPRINGS, B.C. — A Fairmont, B.C., man has learned the hard way that a tunafish sandwich can lead to a lot of damage.

RCMP say the victim left his sandwich in his SUV in the southeastern B.C., community.

That wasn’t a problem, until a black bear ambled past.

Mounties say the bruin sniffed out the tasty morsel, then tore through the SUV’s sunroof to reach it.

The man reported the incident as a vandalized vehicle but police say bear prints covering the side, hood and roof of the damaged SUV helped confirm the culprit.

There has been no sign of the bear or the sandwich. (CHBZ)
