A Lake Mary man got a surprise guest at his home over the weekend when he found a bear asleep in his backyard.

Bob Cross, who lives in the Magnolia Plantation neighborhood, was able to take several photos of the bear.

He also snapped a picture of the bear eating food from a large bag of dog food that it apparently grabbed out of a neighbor's garage and was able to open.

"About an hour into it he decided it was time to take a nap and he just turned over on his back, I mean completely feet up and head back and I was just shocked. Actually I was laughing to myself. I couldn't believe that that bear was in that position and he laid a long time like that," said Cross.

After a short while the bear wandered off.
