Bear cools off in a Burbank pool during heat wave
Police in Burbank, California, were called over an unexpected visitor having a good time taking a dip in a neighbor’s pool.
Police responded to reports of a bear sighting around 3:30 p.m. PT Friday at the 1300 block of Paseo Redondo, the Burbank Police Department said in a news release. When officers arrived, they found the bear relaxing in a jacuzzi toward the rear of one of the homes, the release said.
Shortly after officers arrived, the bear took his leave and “made his way over the wall” and into a tree near the rear of the residence, according to the release. Police monitored the situation with the assistance of the Burbank Animal Shelter and California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the release said.
