Mama Bear and Her Five Cubs Take Over a New Jersey Backyard Pool on a Very Hot Summer’s Day

The record-breaking heat wave recently sent a mama bear and her five cubs out of the woods and in search of a little relief, which came in the form of Tim Basso‘s backyard pool in Rockaway Township, New Jersey. The bears took a nice cool dip in the pool before taking over the rest of the backyard. While the pool surprisingly stood up to the family of bears, it definitely wasn’t usable after that, much to the chagrin of Basso’s little girls.
