Mama bear, 5 cubs beat the heat by playing, swimming in New Jersey family's swimming pool

A mama bear and her five cubs decided to beat the heat in a New Jersey backyard pool.

Tim Basso posted a video online showing the bears climbing into his family's above-ground pool, tumbling out of it, dragging around pool toys and climbing on a slide and swing set.

Basso tells News 12 New Jersey (http://bit.ly/1J9yB4P ) his 3- and 5-year-old daughters weren't eager to share their toys. One of the girls can be heard on the video crying out "No!" as a cub grabs an inflatable toy.

The family watched the bears from inside the safety of their Rockaway Township home.

Basso says he thought the bears would stop only briefly for a drink but ended up frolicking for nearly an hour.
