Curious Black Bear Makes a Quaint House Call in Florida

Don’t you just hate when visitors show up unannounced? Maybe not when they’re as friendly as this guy.

Let me set the scene. You’re comfortably sitting on a chair at the top of your driveway in Longwood, Florida – playing around with your cell phone and paying no attention to what’s going on around you. And then you look up.

Standing directly in front of you, and giving a wide yawn, is a black bear. It certainly seems friendly enough, pushing its nose almost right up to your cell phone. But is it really?

Pretty unbelievable video, right? And for those that think this was shot from behind a glass window – I’m afraid you’re wrong.

As it turns out, and according to a Facebook post, the woman was actually quite scared – and was texting her son (who was in the house at the time) the message: “help me.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is now trying to trap the bear. Once trapped, it will assess and take the appropriate action needed to ensure public safety. Hopefully that means relocation.

Curiosity killed the cat. Hopefully not this bear.
