Black bear hangs out in backyard tree

Fort Myers, Florida (WINK) -- A South Florida couple found a large guest hanging out in their backyard.

This male juvenile black bear spent a good part of the day relaxing up inside of a big oak tree, taking in a few hours of leaf munching before he had a nap.

After the crowd of neighbors who came out to sneak a peak died down, the bear climbed down for a dip in the pool.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officers eased concerns saying that historically the black bears are more afraid of people.
