A bear with only three legs boldly entered a Florida family’s porch and casually indulged in hard seltzers and fish treats.

In Lake Mary, Florida, on a Sunday afternoon, 13-year-old Joseph Diglio was engrossed in watching TV when he was alerted by the persistent barking of his dog, Bruno. Shortly thereafter, he glimpsed Tripod, the renowned three-legged bear among Florida locals, breaking into their porch.

Around 5 p.m., Josaury Faneite-Diglio, Joseph’s mother, received a notification from the security camera. They observed Tripod strolling through her driveway, drawing nearer to the family’s swimming pool.

In the end, Tripod managed to gain entry into the house by ripping a sizable hole in the patio screen, where he proceeded to help himself to three White Claws. Faneite-Diglio noted that his preferred flavors were mango and strawberry.

“After witnessing him open the fridge, I became concerned that he might be capable of entering the houses,” Diglio shared with WESH.

Diglio captured the entire incident on camera. Revealing that this marked the second occasion when a bear had breached their patio screen.

“It’s just a part of life, honestly,” the 13-year-old remarked.

Ultimately, it was Bruno’s persistent barking that frightened the bear away. When reporters visited Diglio’s home, they only discovered the hole in the porch screen that the bear had created to gain entry.

The family emphasized that Tripod is a beloved member of the neighborhood.

“I wasn’t frightened because we’re quite familiar with the bear. He resides here, and we do our best to respect their natural habitat,” Faneite-Diglio informed WESH.
