If you think your summer pool party was a hit, you have nothing on this family of bears’ epic bash. Yes, real bears! No this wasn’t at Jellystone Park, it went down in Rockaway, N.J. Click to watch their fiesta unfold!
It was a fun scene in Rockaway, N.J. for a family of bears. A mama bear and her five cubs decided to take over a backyard pool and turn it into their own personal pool party. Thankfully, the pool’s owner Tim Basso, caught the entire fiesta on video!
The heat must have been downright un-bearable for these wild animals — see what we did there? Tim, a resident in Rockaway, N.J., filmed a lovely bunch of bears playing in his family’s backyard pool. They were caught redhanded (or pawed) using his children’s slide and messing around with a swing set.
The owner was shocked to say the least that his backyard was being taken over by bears. “I thought they would get a drink or just drink out of it for a minute and then move on, but they pretty much started climbing,” Basso told News 12. “My first thought was really, where is the dog and where are the kids?” Thankfully all were safe, so he sat back and just watched the wildlife get, well, WILD!
In the video we see the cubs pulling and dragging pool floats out of the water and around the yard. One child is heard saying, “No way! My floatie!”
He went on to say, “They came in, they experienced the pool, they got it. They seemed to enjoy themselves, did a little bit of damage on the pool toys and floats and what not, but all in all I don’t think it was a terrible experience.” Well, it was an amazing thing to witness.
