Bear Caught on Camera Sniffing Around South Florida Driveway

A South Florida neighborhood had an unexpected late-night visitor on August 18 — a black bear.

Ring camera footage shared by Catherine Buoniello shows the bear lurking in the driveway of her Palm Beach Gardens home at around 1 am, casually taking in its surroundings.

It can be seen pausing to sniff something that piques its interest, before heading into a neighboring yard.

“The bear just walked across my driveway. I couldn’t believe it,” Buoniello told Storyful.

Black bears are native to Florida, but sightings are rare, according to local media. Credit: Catherine Buoniello via Storyful
