GOLDEN GATE ESTATES, Fla. - Two black bears made lunch out of trash they found in Golden Gate Estates. Wildlife enthusiast, Dennis Dellicker, caught the diners on camera before they dashed!
Dellicker took the video on Wednesday, as the bears ate right out of his trash can.
"I was letting the cat out the door and there they were," he said.
Dellicker says he sees a lot of wildlife at his home in Golden Gate Estates.
"From the smallest little critters on up to a bear," he explained.
The New Jersey native moved onto his five acre lot back in 2003.
"It's the wilds out here. I'm at the edge of the swamp," Dellicker said, "I've seen [bears] before so I'm not scared of them. At first I was nervous about it, but now I'm very comfortable with them," he said.
Bears are not his only visitors.
"I saw two panthers in the yard and let me tell you, a panther is as big as any African lion you can imagine," Dellicker stated.
He's also seen alligators, owls and armadillos.
"It's perfect. It's my own national park," he said.
Dennis said the bears came through again this morning, but he wasn't fast enough with the video camera to catch them this time.
