Timothy Henderson estimated the bear sighted in his back yard weighs about 300 pounds.
The bear seemed most interested in the bird seed in a backyard feeder.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers tell News4Jax they have received several calls from residents who have seen a mother bear and two cubs in the neighborhood. None of the encounters have posed a danger to people.
