What a black bear might look like.

You would expect that thing more in Miami.
 
2022-01-21 4:43:26 PM  
Sure it was a bear and not a skunk ape?

I was once felt up by a black bear at a bar in Lakewood, Ohio.
 
2022-01-21 4:43:57 PM  
Daytona has a few bears.
 
2022-01-21 4:44:34 PM  
I respect this dude and would take the same action.

The bucket thrown/pushed at the bear was the key to saving his life.

Intrepid00: Daytona has a few bears.


Probably moar in Miami, but yeah, that'd be my guess.
 
2022-01-21 4:48:09 PM  
Depends on the bar you're at, really.

Bear attacks in Florida are much more likely to happen in South Beach.

Came here for all the gay bear jokes. Leaving satisfied, and a tiny bit confused.

"Ah, Columbo got out.  Which reminds me, did I send my last payment to Peru in?"

Normally one expects cougar attacks on Daytona Beach.

I take it you've never been to Key West
 
2022-01-21 5:28:55 PM  
Umm........Daytona Beach backs up to a massive state forest. Plenty of opportunities for ursines.
 
2022-01-21 6:00:11 PM  
Not exactly where you would expect Yogi.
 
2022-01-21 6:07:40 PM  
Yeah, we have a lot of black bears here.  I live in Volusia County too and we just had a woman get attacked by a bear last week in my town.

Y'all forget Florida is America's dumping ground for just about everything including dangerous wildlife.

Grew up there, can confirm.

What he said. That's only part of it. Toss in a hurricanes, and the many, but lessers things. Adds up.

Somebody must have spilled his poppers.

Bike week is brutal.  Pure Village People.
