Watch: Bear Goes for a Swim, Plays with Foam Noodle

posted on June 24, 2016

It's been a bit of a rough summer, weather wise, throughout the nation. Where it's not storming, it's sweltering hot. Where it's not sweltering hot, you're getting pelted with hail. In southern California, they're dealing with the heat. And, just like humans, a big ol' bear is going to head for water when the temperatures rise. Thing is, they don't much respect personal property rights.

In this video, purportedly filmed in Bradbury, Calif., a bear has apparently broken into a residential swimming pool, and is having a ball. The bruin seems most interested in playing with the foam noodle that the pool's owner left behind. A dip in the pool and a little recreation are exactly what anyone needs at the end of a long, hot day, right?

Get a closer look with the video that we've embedded above.
