Longwood, FL (WDAY TV) -- Imagine if this was your front yard.

Two enormous black bears got into a full-out brawl - not in the woods, not in the zoo, but on the manicured lawns of Longwood, Florida

People were shocked, watching what mammal biologists say was a battle for dominance between two young bears.

They say suburban sprawl is drawing bears from forests on to city streets because of fast food in garbage bins, vegetable gardens, and bird feeders.

Tammmy and Clayton Snell - Saw Bears Fightin: "I mean they were going crazy - I even saw blood at one point. I just see one bear slash the other one in the face. To us it was like, 'wow that's cool,' until they started looking at us, and when they started looking at us, I said 'I see it I see it I don't want to have any of that.'"
