A bear in Naples, Florida swam to a catamaran and made itself comfortable for about an hour.
NAPLES, Fla. - A Florida boat captain heading back to shore did a double take when he spotted a ‘beary’ unusual site aboard a sailing catamaran.
Todd Dillman, the owner of TowBoat U.S. in Southwest Florida, said he saw a bear in Royal Harbor in Naples when he was towing a barge.
The bear is apparently right at home.
