Florida Bear Lounges in Hammock, Stays There for 20 Minutes

Florida Bear Lounges in Hammock, Stays There for 20 Minutes

This weekend, hopefully you'll be chilling as hard as this black bear, who stopped by a Florida home Thursday to relax in the owner's hammock for 20 blissful minutes.

Homeowner Vincent James told local news outlet WESH:

He got in the hammock like he was a tourist or something. Then something spooked him and he ran right back there. Then half an hour later I come back and I saw there he is in the hammock again.

Rafael Torres, who snapped the photo, said the bear was unfazed by his presence 60 feet away.

It wasn't the animal's first visit to Daytona Beach, and James's neighbors told CNN they're being careful with their trash to discourage it from coming back. James, for his part, is taking down the hammock.
