GIBSONS, British Columbia, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- A British Columbia man recorded video of a family of bears using his backyard hammock for purposes other than lounging.

Neville Anthony Judd posted a video to Facebook showing the mother bear and her three cubs biting and pawing at the hammock outside his Gibsons home, but failing to get inside it.

The bears play with the hammock for several minutes, and two cubs initially appear as though they might climb inside, but they become too distracted by wrestling one another.

One cub eventually satisfies itself by merely hanging by its front paws from the hammock.

Judd joked he was going to set up "a sprinkler, wading pool, and trampoline" for when the bears next come around.

He offered a possible explanation for why the bears seemed so fascinated with his trampoline: "Lot of weed grown in this neighborhood... could explain the bears' occasional lack of focus, persistent munchies, etc."
