Bear uses pool to cool off in Minnesota

A bear was found in the backyard of a home in Minnesota on Monday.

The homeowner was able to take pictures of the bear taking a dip in his pool.

The bear was also seen helping himself to some leftovers from the garbage cans.

“Growing up in Northland you know we are used to that. Ya know, I was in Boy Scouts and so we train what to do around certain animals. So no, I didn’t really panic I just told my wife to get the kids in the car,” said homeowner Dave Zbaracki.

Learning from their experience, the family suggests others should keep their garbage inside.
