MELROSE, Fla., June 25 (UPI) -- A Florida animal sanctuary shared video of a brown bear beating the summer heat with a dip in an above-ground pool.

Single Vision, a sanctuary for endangered and exotic animals in Melrose, shared a video on YouTube showing Bruiser the bear climbing the ladder and jumping into the above-ground pool while a black bear named Honey lounges nearby.

Bruiser jumps into the water, takes a quick swim, and gets out to greet the cameraman before jumping back into the water for more swimming.

The sanctuary said Bruiser gets "pool play" time every day.
