A bear in Lake Mary got a little too comfortable inside one man's porch.
Tramaine Gaines said at around 2 a.m. on the day after Christmas, he heard a loud noise and thought someone was breaking into his house.
"I was getting ready to go to bed and that's when I heard the crash," Gaines said.
When he ran downstairs, Gaines saw a large black bear searching for food.
"He stood up to look in the pot, and that's when I realized he would be looking me in my face. And that was crazy."
The bear busted through the screen to get to a big pot of fried turkey oil on the back porch, left over from Christmas dinner. It left when it didn't find any turkey.
Gaines will have to replace his screen and grill cover. He said he won't be leaving food on the porch any more.
