These Bear Cubs Were Hot So They Took a Swim in a Birdbath

These bear cubs know how to beat the heat.

Sainty Wang and Carlos Chavez were at their Pasadena, California home when they noticed a pair of bear cubs cooling off in their backyard bird bath. The cubs weren’t alone though. Sainty and Carlos also captured images of an adult bear in their yard.

Watch the video to see how California bear cubs cool off.

While this video of swimming bear cubs is cute, it’s important to remember that these are wild animals. If something similar happens in your backyard, leave the bears alone or you could be in for a seriously negative encounter with their momma.

Situations like the ones shown in the video are becoming more and more common thanks to urban and suburban sprawl and protection of predators. Knowing how to react to a wildlife encounter, especially an encounter with a predator, will help you and your family stay safe.
