|A family of bears enjoys a refreshing dip in a New Jersey|
pool on a recent hot afternoon. Video of
this scene has gone viral
So it was in Rockaway Township, New Jersey recently, when a a family did just that. Of course, it was a family of bears, not humans that were splashing around the backyard pool.
The Basso family, who normally plays in the pool, huddled inside and filmed the spectacle.
The fun part about the bears on video is how much they are just like a regular human family playing around the pool, the toys and the swingset.
One of the young Basso kids is distraught at one point and starts to cry as they watch from their window. ""They took my floaty!" the crying girl says. Those selfish bears! They should share the toys.
Mrs. Basso assures the kid that she will buy her daughter another floaty.
The bears obviously causes some damage to the pool and toys, as the yard was designed for humans, not bears, but the Basso family said the harm was not great and that the bears were pretty good houseguests.
The video below is 11 minutes long but worth the entire time. The Bassos said the bears were in the back yard for almost an hour.
The video has naturally gone viral and has been featured on many MSM news programs. But I can't resist sharing it here, too:
