Bear Caught Skinny Dipping In Los Angeles Foothills [VIDEO]


Screen shot 2012-05-30 at 2.22.13 PM3 tell tale signs that summer is upon us:

1. You discover that your air conditioning is broken.

2. You avoid getting into your car because you know you will have burn marks afterwards.

3. You look into your backyard to find a bear cooling off in your pool.

Can somebody get this bear a mojito?!!

Watch as this sun-bathing bear enjoys a leisurely swim, unwinds, relaxes, and takes in the view of a Los Angeles suburb.

Shocked by the sight, two sisters, Rachel and Valerie did what any other person would do - pulled out their cell phones and recorded the bear swimming around their pool.

“He kind of like walks over to the pool, and we thought it was gonna drink some water,” Rachel told KTLA, a Los Angeles news station. "But it ends up jumping over the ledge, and it's kind of like floating around there, chilling."

The bear only stayed for five minutes, just enough to escape from the California heat. Afterwards, he left the pool and returned to the hills leaving everything and everyone unharmed.
