Bear Jumps Into Pool. But When He Sees Man Recording, The Real Show Begins


Have you ever seen a bear jump into a pool? Bear (ha!) with me here. I know it’s a strange question, but believe it or not, I have. And if you watch the video down below, you will have, too. Seriously! Let’s do a play by play on what our brown furry friend, Bruiser, was doing in his daily pool play.

Bruiser is a Syrian brown bear currently residing in the Single Vision Wildlife Sanctuary in Clay Country, Florida. He, like everyone else, was probably just as excited for summer to arrive to take a swim, so when he finally got the chance, he was going to go all out.

The video begins with Bruiser climbing up the pool ladder at a fast pace that screams, “I’m so happy!” People usually hesitate when they walk to the edge of the pool to jump in because even if it’s 90 degrees outside, and cool water may feel good, it’s still really cold! But, this doesn’t apply to this furry friend of ours! The second Bruiser reaches that last step, he jumps directly into the pool without a moment’s hesitation! He makes a big splash right before shaking his head to get rid of the water on his face.
