What's a bear to do when it wants to beat the blistering heat? Hop in a neighborhood swimming pool, of course.
A bear plopped into a Bradbury, Calif. woman's pool on Sunday, the big beast cooling off as temperatures soared to record highs throughout the Golden State.
"He continued to play around for about 20 minutes. We watched him play with the different rafts and my baby's pool toys," Shannon Lievense told ABC7.
People in the neighborhood reportedly spot bears often.
Father's Day temperatures reached 120 degrees in the Palm Springs area, ABC7 reported.
