Bear Cubs Go for a Dip in Family’s Pool

A mother bear and her five cubs made their own pool party in the backyard of a home in Rockaway Township, New Jersey, on a hot day this week.

The Basso family watched from inside their house, where an outraged little girl can be heard exclaiming, “There’s bears in the pool! They took my floaty!”

The brood also checked out the swing set and the kids’ toys before their party was over. According to a report from CNN, the bears stayed for nearly an hour before they decided to move on.

“They came in; they experienced the pool; they got in; they seemed to enjoy themselves. Did a little bit of damage to some of the pool toys and floats. But all in all, I don’t think it was a terrible experience,” Tim Basso, the father, tells CNN.
