Bear Lounges Around in Homeowner’s Hammock Like He Owns the Place

A homeowner in Florida had quite the surprise when he found a black bear lounging around in his hammock.

According to Vincent James, the bear stayed in the hammock for about 20 minutes before going about the rest of the day’s business.

James told local new agency WESH:

He got in the hammock like he was a tourist or something. Then something spooked him and he ran right back there. Then half an hour later I come back and I saw there he is in the hammock again.

The guy who snapped the image of the bear, Rafael Torres, said it wasn’t bothered by his presence and just continued relaxing.

Other homeowners in the area have taken precautions to prevent bears from becoming regular visitors, including carefully handling their garbage.

James said he will be removing the hammock from his property.
