Black Bear Goes Viral Hibernating Under Family's Deck

Everyone knows that dogs are man’s best friend. Also, most are aware that cats are extremely lazy. They really, really love their sleep. Likewise, most people if they mistakenly walked into bear territory would move swiftly in the other direction. But what if a bear decided to come and hang out at your place?

One family in Connecticut is dealing with that exact issue. A Black bear has made its way to them, taking up residency underneath their deck. A video of the wild houseguest has gone viral, racking up millions of views on social media. 

Vincent Dashukewich was outside walking his dog when the canine sensed something was astray. The dog began barking and that’s when Vincent made the shocking discovery.

“I didn’t really have a thought, I was just kind of shocked. He was staring right at me. I didn’t know what to do, I just wanted to make sure my dog got inside safe,” he told WTNH, a TV station in Connecticut. 

The massive bear does not appear to have any plans to move anytime soon. Also, like most animals people encounter, Vincent decided to give his wildlife houseguest a name: Marty.

While the animal continues to make its hibernation spot on Tyler’s property, he admits the bear hasn’t been a noisy or rowdy guest.

“He’s been super chill; I’ve gone out to check on him a few times and he hasn't really moved. He’s looked at me a few times but he’s, you know, he’s pretty calm right now,” Tyler said

At this time, at least not yet, it appears that the animal’s living arrangement has not become unbearable for Tyler and his family.

Genesis 1:30 “And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.”
