Relaxed bear takes dip in family’s swimming pool

Un-bear-lievable!  The scorching Californian sunshine appeared to be too much for one chilled out bear after it sneaked into a family’s backyard to take a relaxing dip in their pool.

Two sisters were shocked after returning to their home in Monrovia, California, to find the wild black bear cooling off after a long day in the woods.

The bear appeared to be enjoying its time in the luxury pool and the stunning panoramic views as it looked out across the Golden State.

His unlikely excursion was filmed by teenagers Rachel and Valerie Gasparini from the safety of their kitchen on a camera phone.

‘It kind of like walks over to the pool, and we thought it was gonna drink some water,’ revealed one sister.

‘It ends up jumping over the ledge, and it’s kind of like floating around there, chilling.

She added: ‘It wasn’t any making a ruckus or it wasn’t like destroying things in our backyard, so we didn’t really feel the need to call anybody.’

The girls called their parents following the incident but said they found it more entertaining than scary.
