Sept. 15 (UPI) — A Massachusetts man captured video of a family of bears that dropped by his back yard to take a dip in a wading pool and play on the swing set.
Mike Lafond captured video when he spotted three bears playing in the inflatable pool behind his Westfield home.
The bears’ rowdy antics apparently caused the pool to deflate.
The animals eventually moved on to the nearly playground set, attempting to climb on the slide and the swings.
The black bear hunting season in Massachusetts began Sept. 7 and runs through Sept. 25. A second bear hunting season will commence in November.
