Life can be tough being a bear, especially when you’re trapped under a fur coat during a sweltering California heat wave.
One bear decided enough was enough on Sunday, and opted for a swim in a homeowner’s backyard pool in the city of Sierra Madre.
“This is unreal,” the homeowner can be heard saying in a video of the bear’s relaxing dip in the water, as reported by NBC Los Angeles. “How awesome is that?”
The bear can be seen taking it easy on the pool steps, then treading across the water to the other side and taking a little break on another set of steps before slowly getting out of the water.
Here's to hoping the temperatures cool down soon, and if not, that this bear opts for a lake instead of a residential pool next time.
