Monrovia Bear Takes Dip In Family Pool

They told KTLA that they thought he might be passing through for a quick drink but were shocked when the bear climbed in and helped himself to a relaxing swim. They captured it on video from the safety of their kitchen.
The swimming bear from Monrovia may be trying to upstage the meatballs and baklava-loving bears from Glendale. On May 17, a "new" black bear was spotted enjoying baklava and leftover chicken from a neighborhood receptacle.
