NAPLES, Fla. — A Florida woman says an uninvited four-legged guest has found a way to make the heat a little more bearable – by swimming in her pool.
According to WBBH and WPLG, Karen Bockrath, of Naples, recently discovered that her porch screen had been ripped. One suspect immediately came to mind: a bear she had spotted in her backyard, the outlets reported.
“When your ‘pet’ bear wants to put his paws in the pool but can’t open the screen door,” Bockrath captioned a photo of the damage in an April 14 Facebook post.
Since then, the sneaky bear has dropped by several times to take a dip, Bockrath told WBBH. She has even caught the furry intruder on camera.
“Guess I’m having a pool party! Who knew!” she captioned a snapshot of the bear playing in the water.
Bockrath told WBBH that her 6-year-old grandson gets a kick out of showing the photos to his friends at school.
