Pair of kittens chases 200-pound bear up a tree

A 6-foot, 200-pound bear has been perched high above a Central Florida neighborhood for hours on Friday after it was chased up a tree by 6-month-old kittens.
"(The bear) was out looking for a place to live and got startled and took refuge in the tree," Florida Fish and Wildlife worker Tom Shupe said.

"(The kittens) had the bear just cornered at the fence and it saw the tree and just ran up the tree and has been there ever since," homeowner Jason Daniels said.
Officials from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have been called to the scene to determine what to do with the bear, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
