If you (a relatively hairless being) think this heat wave is oppressive, take a moment to consider: how would you feel if someone—say, the creator of the universe—forced you to wear a fur coat in these triple digit temperatures? Unfortunately for bears and other fuzzy creatures in L.A., such is the hand they’ve been dealt. Which is why we can’t blame one black bear for taking a dip in the backyard pool at a Sierra Madre home.
Unable to resist the cool water, the little guy (or girl) dove in and hung out for 15 minutes, resting on the steps at both ends for a time before lumbering out and considering a plunge into the hot tub. Soak up the cuteness in the video below.
