SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - A huge black bear made a mess in a Seminole County family's yard Tuesday morning.
Officials believe the bear may be back very soon.
"He just was eating whatever was in my garbage," said Sandra Sheppard.
Sheppard's husband had no sooner parked the trash bins when the bear quickly moved in.
"He turned around and he was shocked to find this huge bear up on his hind legs, taking our garbage bag," said Sheppard.
The couple captured the moment on camera.
Eventually the bear did wander away, or so the
"This is the pole that bear was rubbing on, and as you can clearly see he was also sharpening his claws," said Sheppard.
The concern is that this bear knows the garbage schedule and has no problem following residents to the curb.
"He was not concerned about any of us. He was just concerned about the garbage," said Sheppard.
