Don’t mess with a woman’s avocados. A Florida woman captured video of a bear she caught in the act of eating avocados from the tree in her yard. Lynn Wracan said the bear has been seen wandering in the area for months, and she recently spotted it showing interest in one of her trees in the early morning hours. Wracan said the bear initially appeared to be interested in her Christmas lights, but she soon realized the animal was stealing avocados from the tree. She said the bear has been blamed for fruit disappearances from multiple trees in the neighborhood. She said authorities told her there is nothing they can do.
In a related story, another Florida resident who was alerted to the presence of a bear in his neighborhood discovered the animal taking a nap outside his front door.
Chuck Robbins of Heathrow said he had heard there was a bear in his neighborhood and went out to try to take photos or video of the animal, but he couldn't locate the bear went home.
