LAKE MARY, Fla. — A homeowner came home to find a big black bear stretched out asleep on his lawn after it consumed a 20-pound bag of dog food, media in the Orlando, Fla., area reported.
WFTV said the homeowner called neighbor Bob Cross, who usually gets calls from his neighbors to catch much smaller critters.
When he got there, he told the news station, he said he couldn’t believe the size of the bear. “That’s a big bear, that’s a huge bear,” he said.
Cross said the bear had dragged a 20-pound bag of dog food from a nearby garage to the shade of a tree and then gobbled it up. Then took a nap.
Cross told the station he laughed at how human-like the bear was while sleeping, repositioning itself three or four times and stretching out.
It later lumbered off.
