A Virginia woman woke up to a very unusual sight: a huge wild bear was pool-babying at her backyard, enjoying every bit of the summer day.
Regina Keller, who has the kiddie pool in her backyard attracted the huge bear in a summer day; but the woman is no stranger to such displays of wildlife in her property.
On July 19th, Keller was watering flowers when the male black bear sauntered in her garden. Her house is located near the George Washington National Forest in Fort Valley, Virginia.
Furry animals like foxes, bears, squirrels and deers are common visitors in the residents of the remote region.
Speaking to CNN, Keller said this particular black bear that sauntered in her backyard was the biggest she saw this year.
Moreover, the specific bear that has wandered into the backyard is known by Keller, she told CNN that as soon as she saw him she recognised and also said she has not seen her in two years.
“He wandered around the backyard… and went over by the pool and dipped his big paw in the water… and then climbed right in and laid down. He seemed so content and refreshed,” Keller said.
Fortunately, Keller had a camera to capture the whole stuff. As soon as the bear made himself comfortable in the pool she retreated on a chair ‘just to observe him.’
The furry beast reportedly laid in the kiddie pool for an hour before leaving.
