Lady Lake man shoots bear that broke into home twice

A Lady Lake man says he was forced to shoot and kill a black bear that broke into his home.

The victim said the bear broke into his home twice.

Victor Peters believes the bear may have been after his dog’s food during the frist break-in on Tuesday.

The homeowner was instructed by Florida Fish and Wildlife to move the dog food inside to prevent another encounter, but it didn’t work.

The bear returned Wednesday night.

“It was the biggest bear I have ever seen,” said Peters.

The bear weighed about 500 pounds.

“I was very scared. I figured when I yelled it would take off, but it didn’t. It just looked right at me and started coming toward the window, where I was at, so that’s when I fired,” Peters said.
