VIDEO | Bear spotted snuggling in Connecticut tree


A bear has made itself right at home inside a hole in a tree not far from the center of West Hartford, Connecticut and it does not seem to want to leave.

Martha Guidry, of West Hartford, said the bear has been in the tree for about six weeks.

“Every once in a while, he pokes his head out and says hello, but he hasn’t really moved, so, I think he’s down for the count,” she said.

When the bear initially moved into the tree, Guidry said, she was nervous. Now there is a curiosity factor.

“Every day I wake up and I look out the window to see. Is his head sticking out? Is he smiling? Is he sleeping?,” she said.

Kimberly Plumb, of West Hartford, said they are kind of worried because there are a lot of small kids in the neighborhood. And she’s more cautious when she goes for a run in the morning.
