Driven to towns by scarcity of food due to drought this summer, bears have wandered through farmers' markets, broken into cars after sniffing out fast food left overs, and ransacked peoples' kitchens.

Here how can we take have common with broken and ransacked??
According to egmat, this sentence ensures parallel structure as all the three verbs are in present perfect tense but i fail to comprehend this structure??
Any help.....

Hi Sankalp92, of course, we can take have common. So, the structure is:

bears have:
i) wandered through farmers' markets
ii) broken into cars after sniffing out fast food left overs
iii) ransacked peoples' kitchens

So, what's exactly confusing you?
