Bear Relaxes in Pasadena Backyard as Family Dog Barks

A bear in Pasadena, California, decided to drink some water and relax in a backyard on Saturday, July 4, even if their visit wasn’t welcomed by everyone.

Video shared by Deedee Mueller shows the bear drinking from a water feature and sitting on the deck to scratch. The family dog can be heard barking at the intruder.

Mueller told Storyful that “a momma bear and two cubs” live in her neighborhood. The family of bears occasionally visited her backyard to “cool off” in their pond before the young cubs started visiting on their own.
