Aug. 18 (UPI) -- A Montana woman captured video of a bear taking a dip in her backyard koi pond and snacking on her plants.

Cynthia St. Charles posted a video to Facebook showing the bear lounging in the koi pond behind her Lockwood home and scooping the floating greens into its mouth.

"This damn bear got into my backyard koi pond / waterfall and wreaked havoc! Amazing! Just a few steps from my back door," St. Charles wrote.

The homeowner said she was surprised when the bear climbed into the pond.

"I was just stunned. I thought it would drink out of the pond. I never dreamed it would enter the pond and splash around and have such a good time. I thought it would eat my fish but it didn't bother my fish, they're all there," St. Charles told KBZK-TV.
