LAKE MARY, FL – A lot of us have unwanted guests over during the holidays.  We usually call them “in-laws.”  But one Florida family had a truly unbearable experience this Christmas.

A black bear wasn’t interested in Goldilocks or her porridge, he wanted some turkey. He could smell the oil from a pot that Tremaine Gaines left on his enclosed front porch.

No one was hurt by the unexpected guest, but the beast did cause a couple hundred dollars worth of damage during his stay.  Even so, this Goldilocks doesn’t fault the bear.
