Brown Bear Spotted in Orlando

Residents in Orlando got a visit from an unusual guest Saturday afternoon.

A large brown bear was spotted roaming around town, and it eventually made its way up into a tree.

Police kept a close eye on the bear, but the bear hung out in the tree for most of the afternoon, drawing people's attention.

Antonio Edwards was one of those onlookers.

"Well right now we're ok cause he's in the tree but if he comes out of the tree I think we're all gonna lose it," he said.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Officials were notified but say they won't respond until the bear does something that endangers itself or others.
