A 7-year-old Naples boy on Wednesday saw a bear napping on his lanai. The boy was home with his babysitter and then frantically texted his mom. "Sleeping OMG," the boy texted. "What do we do?" NBC-2 TV reports the family watched as the bear rested on the porch. They took pictures and video of the sleepy bear as he napped. The bear finally took off after about an hour, leaving the enclosed porch through a hole in a screened door.(****END****)
