He looks soooo relaxed...

Bear chills out in back garden hammock

It's tough being a bear, you know?

People always think the worst of you - that you're going to kill or horribly maim them. Sometimes, a bear just needs to get away from it all and relax.

This bear has been spotted several times scavenging for food in a Florida neighbourhood and seems to have decided that a hammock is his go-to happy place when he needs a break.

Vincent James, who owns the hammock, told a local news stations that the black bear sat there for around 20 minutes.

"He got in the hammock like he was a tourist or something."

"Then something spooked him and he ran right back there. Then half an hour later I come back and I saw there he is in the hammock again."

Vincent has since taken it down as he (understandably) would rather the black bear didn't hang out in his back garden.

We're just impressed the bear managed to get into the hammock at all - those things are tricky.
