    Coquitlam family snoozes through ‘bear and enter’ as pair of bruins break into car, garage

    A Coquitlam family had a rude awakening earlier this week after a very unusual break and enter.

    It happened just before 3 a.m., Thursday, in a residential neighbourhood near Westwood Plateau.

    The culprits? A pair of black bears.

    And while the curious and hungry bruins made plenty of noise, Sean McQuillan said his entire family, including a pair of usually excitable pugs, slept through the entire thing.

    “The bear managed to open my driver side door and rummage through the car causing bear-like damage,” McQuillan wrote on Twitter.

    They also managed to open the family’s garage door, where they found stored trash “and had the feast of 1,000 toddler leftovers.”

    “I’m talking half-eaten sandwiches, bell peppers, cracker crumbles, diapers – you name it, this bear was in heaven at 2:50 a.m.”

    While the McQuillans slept blissfully through the assault on their car, garage, and trash — the commotion woke the neighbours, who tried unsuccessfully to call the family and wake them.
