LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Everyone needs a break from the heat – including a mother bear and her cubs.
Pallas Buckley and his family were visiting Pope Beach on the south shore of Lake Tahoe Tuesday when they spotted some very hair swimmers in the water, FOX 61 reported.
A family of three bears decided to take a dip, right next to a group of kayakers and nearby swimmers. The bears were mere feet off shore, and even walked across the sand at one point in the video.
The video has been viewed millions of times across the internet.
It’s important to remember that if you encounter a bear in the wild, don’t get too close, authorities said. Here are some tips from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to keep you safe.
