Even though Orlando had a big mess to clean up with the birds, it’s probably better than the local woman who heard a noise in her kitchen Tuesday. She started to go in, expecting it to be her father-in-law coming for a visit. Instead a black bear that had been rummaging in her trash stood up. The bear was as startled as the woman — the woman quickly closed and locked the kitchen door and retreated to the back bedroom to call 911. The bear left through the same window it had used to enter the house.
The woman said the bear hadn’t made much of a mess, except for demolishing a window screen when it entered. The police and the media were a different story — they came in with muddy boots. She was still happy to see them.
