(Meredith) -- A Massachusetts man got quite the surprise when he woke up from a nap and saw a bear standing right in front of him.
Matt Bete was enjoying a poolside nap at his Greenfield home when a bear wandered into his backyard through an open gate.
Video shows the bear sniffing Bete's foot and giving it a nudge with its paw. As soon as the man wakes up, the bear scampers off.
Bete then grabs his phone, and the bear comes back for one last look before leaving for good.
The man's wife, Dawn Bete, posted the video to Facebook on Sunday.
“He wasn’t sure how he should react but knew he couldn’t get up that fast,” she wrote of her husband's experience. “But at least he had another chair and table between them if needed. Luckily it went running out soon after the encounter.”
