Two teen sisters in Monrovia spotted a black bear taking a leisurely dip in their 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.

Officials said that it might have been the famous 500-pound "Glen Bearian" who enjoys meatballs, oranges and tweets at @The Glendale Bear.
