Alice MacDonough was out to lunch when she received frantic text messages from her 7-year-old son, who was home with a babysitter at the time. A bear was found napping on a patio at the Naples, Florida home. The bear wandered around and then decided to lie down and rest.

In San Diego, we hear of coyotes, snakes and even tarantulas making their way into communities but nothing like this.

A Naples, Florida family was shocked to find a large bear sleeping on the screened-in patio.

Alice MacDonough was out to lunch when she received frantic text messages from her 7-year-old son, who was home with a babysitter at the time.

She arrived home to see what they told her – that a very large bear was found napping on a patio.

The bear wandered around and then decided to lie down and rest.

“Oh my gosh,” you can hear someone whisper on the video obviously taken by a mobile phone. “Wow!”

One of MacDonough’s sons told a local television station said he had never seen a bear that huge.

The family told the reporter they have seen bears in their neighborhood before but never so close.
