It's A Bear's World. We Just Live In It.

Watch hilarity ensue as a mother bear and her five cubs discover someone's backyard pool

I just can't write about the crazy 2016 nonsense all the time, and this video is too funny. Watch these bears have the time of their lives in a backyard pool.

A township family had an unlikely visit this week when a black bear mother and her five cubs stopped by for a swim and some backyard fun.

The videos show the ursine family taking a swim, playing on the slide, using the swings and enjoying a beautiful day.

Based on the videos, the homeowners were shocked but took the incident in stride—despite some property damage.

Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Larry Hajna said officials with Fish and Wildlife were not planning to take any steps to relocate the bears at this point because their behavior wasn't aggressive. was concerned after posting this video that they might pay a visit somewhere else, I guess, so they also posted advice about what to do if a family of bears takes over your back yard. Helpful hints for us all!
