June 15 (UPI) -- A California homeowner snapped a photo of a bear spotted beating the heat with a dip in the home's backyard pool.
The Claremont resident snapped a photo Sunday showing the bear lounging in the pool behind the house on Montana Lane.
Witnesses also captured video of the bear climbing a wall to walk on the ledge and rooting through some trash in the neighborhood.
Bears have been known to wander from the nearby San Gabriel Mountains into populated areas. A bear made headlines in June 2019 when it climbed a wall outside a Claremont home to sit on the ledge and eat a package of Twizzlers candy.
