Wildlife got a little too close for comfort for one Florida family.

But comfort seemed to be just what a black bear was going for when he left the Collier County woods, tore through the MacDonough’s screen door, and settled down in their patio room.

“This is the closest I’ve ever come to a bear let alone a seven or eight foot bear sitting on my back porch,” said homeowner Alice MacDonough.

The bear hung out and napped for about an hour, but ultimately the pros had to be called to get him out.

They say he was likely just looking for a dry spot.

We like to think he was just tired of the bear necessities.
