The Basso family of Rockaway Township, New Jersey was startled when they looked out the window one day to find an entire family of black bears lounging and playing around their family pool!
The mother bear and her five cubs swarmed the family’s backyard when they spotted an opportunity to escape the scorching summer heat.
The playful cubs can be seen splashing around in the pool, climbing in and out, and even sliding down the small child’s toy slide. While some of the little bears cool off in the pool others rough house and play in the yard.
The Basso family said the bears frolicked in their yard for nearly an hour before climbing back into the woods.
It looks like this family not only had a fun and relaxing hour of fun, but also got a good bath at the same time!
