A Connecticut family discovers a large black bear is living under their deck

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. A family in Plainville, Conn., got a big surprise when they took a peek under their deck. A large black bear was living there. And apparently, he's planning on sticking around for a long winter's nap. Marty the bear became a viral sensation after the homeowners posted a video of him on TikTok. They say living with their sleepy housemate is bearable. And they'll just let Marty hibernate peacefully until spring.
