LAKE COUNTY. Fla. -

Just weeks after someone caught the largest Burmese python ever found in Florida, trappers caught the biggest black bear ever.

Florida Fish & Wildlife trapper Mike Connolly caught this 620-pound black bear in Lake County.

It's the largest black bear ever captured in Florida.

Biologists collected hair samples, performed an exam, and added an identification tattoo and ear tag before releasing the bear.

Take a look at the picture above on the right. That release was videotaped with a small camera.
