Bear in tree spotted in Seminole Co. neighborhood


SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - Some residents in Seminole County got a surprise Monday night when they noticed a bear in a tree.

The large black bear was hanging out in a tree near Heathrow Boulevard and Cherry Ridge Drive.

Residents told WFTV the bear had been up there for hours, but they weren't too worried about it.

Fish and Wildlife officials said the bears could start appearing more in the coming weeks because they're searching for more food to get ready for the winter.
