When the weather gets nice, most people find their own summer rituals to relax. Some go for long hikes in the sun, others like to read a good book outside a cafe and some like to go for a dip in the pool. But have you ever seen a bear in a hot tub?
But it’s not just humans that like to make a summery splash, it turns out bears love to relax in the sun also. A Southern California man’s margarita in the sun was abruptly put on hold when a party-crasher hijacked his hot tub.
Mark Hough, a Californian local heard a rustling of leaves and the snapping of twigs in his backyard. As he looked over, he spotted something he never thought he’d see.
Out of nowhere, a bear started climbing over his fence and into his back garden.
A bear in a hot tub had plans of his own to cool off on a hot summer day
The bear seemed quite content cooling off, clearly, an invitation was not required – thankfully, he didn’t bring a plus 1.
Granted, it was a particularly hot day in Altadena, so I guess Hough figured he may have to share his outdoor pool with friends. But he never expected to see a bear in a hot tub!
Mark stated that as soon as the bear hopped over the fence, he jumped straight into the pool to cool down. Don’t worry, the hot tub’s heat wasn’t on so the water was nice and cool for the wild bear.
He was playing, having a grand old time.
Quite frankly, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous! I could do with a nice recline in a hot tub right about now.
But a few minutes later, the bear got out of the hot tub and knocked over Mark’s margarita. Immediately, the bear began to lap up the contents.
So he had his margarita, he had his Jacuzzi, and now he’s ready for an hour nap. It was an interesting Friday, to say the least.
