He’s — slightly — smarter than the av-er-age bear!

A bear broke into an SUV and took it for a joyride — before crashing it, trashing the interior and pooping inside, according to new reports.

“It would have taken a human being hours to do what this bear did in a couple minutes,” said Ron Cornelius, who found the car after the animal mowed down his mailbox, told the Durango Herald.

The bear hijacked the Subaru from Cornelius’ neighbor in the Colorado town early Friday — likely releasing the parking brake and causing the car to roll down the driveway and crash into a utility box and the mailbox, the paper reports.

The ruckus woke Cornelius and his wife and they dashed outside to find the totaled car and called 911, fearing humans were still inside.

The couple didn’t see the bear, but they did find the steering wheel and radio ripped out, the back window broken — and tell-tale bear poop left behind, they told the paper.
