Bear Goes Swimming in Backyard Pool

During a southern California heat wave with temperatures topping 100 degrees, a backyard pool in Sierra Madre proved too enticing for this bear to pass up Sunday afternoon. “This is unreal,” the homeowner says in a video of the bear’s swim. “How awesome is that?”In the footage, the bear sits peacefully on the steps of the pool before swimming to another set of steps and eventually getting out and wandering off. He stayed in the water for about 15 minutes. This is the first time homeowner Thomas See has seen a bear go for a swim in his pool. — Watch it at NBC Los Angeles
