A Florida woman had a close encounter with a curious and hungry little bear cub last week. 

On August 11, Angie Pope of Navarre, Florida, uploaded a video to Facebook showing a black bear foraging around in her backyard.



At one point in the video the bear goes for her tomato plants, and when Pope taps on the glass to scare it away, the bear decides to get right in her face. “This bear has got some balls,” Pope said in the video.

“The bear cannot get in the house, he’s just hungry,” Pope told her kids, “Mommy will shoot him if he tries to get in the house.”
