A car owner tried with his best "father's voice" to prevent a bear from entering his vehicle – and was amazed when it worked.
Incredibly funny footage from the safety of a cabin in the woods in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, shows the giant black bear taking a closer look at a parked Jeep-style vehicle.
The car owner films the bear, who stands on his hind legs like a human and skillfully opens the car door with his paws.

Under his breath, the car owner says, "Oh my god."
Then he raises his voice sternly to use his best "father's voice" and yells at the bear and says, "Hey! No, don't!"
The startled bear looks over to see who is screaming and lets go of the car door that strikes.

The man laughs amused or relieved, but it's not over when the curious bear tries to break in a second time and opens the car door again.

When the bear finally sneaks away, the man laughs and laughs: "Come on man, what's wrong with you?"
The man filming the video raises his voice sternly to use his best "father's voice" and yells at the bear and says, "Hey! No, don't!" Which stops the bear

The father of three had spent a weekend with his wife in a cabin in the woods of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, to celebrate his birthday when the bear incident occurred.
The incident was captured on camera last week on July 23.
The man in the video said, "My wife and I were in a cabin at the weekend to celebrate my birthday.
“We have three young sons. When a black bear came out of the forest and opened my car door, I used what my children & # 39; the father's voice & # 39; called to yell at the bear and he immediately stopped what he was doing and closed my car door for me. Twice. & # 39;
Bears in Tennessee are primarily black bears, and there are approximately 1,500 bears in the region
Bears in Tennessee are mostly black with a long, straight, brown snout, but in other parts of America, bears can be black, brown, and white.
The footage was shot near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with around 1,500 bears.
A healthy male Tennessee black bear can be between four and seven feet long and weigh up to 500 pounds in the winter months.
Black bears are very curious animals and often stand on their hind legs to get a better view or a better sense of hearing and smell.
