Bears are extremely intelligent animals. We've shared videos in the past of them getting into all kinds of stuff to try and get food, like a car.

Well, apparently the bears in Lake Tahoe, California have figured out how to open garage doors, which was caught on video.

"My daughter lives at the shore of famous Lake Tahoe where Black Bears have made their home. Bears have learned to break into garages to find food," the caption from Viral Hog reads. "This smart bear opened the door, did not find anything to his liking and closed the door again. Pretty smart. Now with a large forest fire close by and people fleeing their homes, bears have destroyed garage doors, not so nice!!"

The video shows the bear opening the garage door, pushing it up to look inside.
