A black bear.
The Franczaks’ Great Smoky Mountain admirer opened one of the doors to their Nissan. They tried to scare the bear off by yelling, “Roar! Roar! Roar!”
Unfortunately this did not work. Unimpressed, the bear walked on, as if the sport utility vehicle had been made from peanut butter itself.
The family said, “Go! Walk! Walk!”
So the bear … went to the other side of the SUV.
Also from CBS Chicago:
It was Franczak’s family vacation for Grandma’s birthday.

“One of our things on the bucket list was seeing a bear,” said dad Brian Franczak.
But that’s not what they had in mind.
“I just screamed, ‘Oh my god! The bear is here! The bear is in the driveway, ”said mother Carly Franczak.
“I was at the go-kart race and my grandpa got a call that there was a bear in her car,” said daughter Olivia Franczak, “and we couldn’t believe it at first. We thought my uncle dressed up as a bear and got in the car. “
“Everyone is fine,” added Brian Franczak.
Brad Edwards of CBS 2 isn’t a mammologist, but the Franczak family encounter probably wasn’t a bear intraction masterclass.
“You should probably do some research on using bear spray before you encounter any bears,” said Brian Franczak.
