Watching a Happy Bear Go For a Leisurely Swim in the Pool


There’s something inherently entertaining about the juxtaposition between wild animals and anything that could be considered suburban. The bear in this video jumps into an above-ground swimming pool and plays with some of the pool toys. To the bear, this action probably isn’t any different from jumping into a mountain lake. However, given the context, the bear looks just like anyone else enjoying a leisurely and lazy swim.

The bear is then asked whether he’s happy, and indeed, he seems to show all signs of being happy. The bear acts almost like a pet dog throughout the rest of the video to the person who asked the question off-camera. The bear also continues to show off how easy it is for him to jump in and out of a steep above-ground swimming pool, which is impressive. This is a video that people would eagerly share on Facebook with other animal lovers.
