Florida police officer opens patrol car door to greet wandering black bear
OCKLAWAHA, Fl. —
If a big bear wandered in front of your parked car, most people wouldn't open their car door to get a better look.
That's what an officer in Florida did and he videotaped the whole encounter.
The bear appears to be out for a stroll as he wanders onto the road in front of the patrol car. The officer calls him "buddy," and the bear comes closer.
Then the big surprise -- the officer actually opens his car door to presumably get a closer look as the bear stands just a few feet away.
For a second it looks like the bear wants to crawl in. They look at each other for a while and then the bear went on his merry way.
It turns out Florida black bears are not nearly as aggressive as grizzly bears.
