Video captures 2 black bears wrestling on lawn

The Associated Press

LONGWOOD, Fla. — A video shows two black bears wrestling on the front lawn of a Florida home — but residents say they don’t want the animals forced to live somewhere else.

In the video, the bears appear to be play-fighting on the ground and later while standing up. The fight spills over into nearby bushes and ends about two minutes later with both bears leaving in separate directions.

The bears were on Tammy Snell’s lawn. The Longwood resident says bears are part of the scenery for the area. She told the Orlando Sentinel that residents don’t want to relocate the bears. As she put it: “We moved into their area. It’s really like living in a zoo.”
