NAVARRE, Fla. (AP) - A mother bear and three cubs are back in their usual habitat after surprising a Florida neighborhood by hanging out in a big pine tree.
Residents found the black bears on Monday morning. They had climbed a pine tree in a subdivision in Navarre in the Florida Panhandle. They slipped away later in the day.
Neighbor Bob Anderson says the bears are lured from a nearby preserve by garbage cans put outside for collection day.
A biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said three cubs is not unheard of for the area.
