Video: Florida deputy encounters peaceful, curious bear on roadway
OCKLAWAHA, Fla. (WGFL) —
Marion County Sheriff's deputies never know what they're going to see while on patrol.
The video, released by the sheriff's office Sunday, shows a black bear crossing the road near the Ocklawaha area. You can hear the deputy tell the bear "Hey, buddy" as they then exchange glances for a moment.
"We realize that recently we posted a video of one of our deputies encountering a 'bare' person, but occasionally, they just encounter bears," the sheriff's office wrote on its Facebook page. "Deputy Remington met this very curious guy after he responded to a call in the Ocklawaha area. (We do prefer bear encounters by the way)."
