North Vancouver couple finds bear in their swimming pool and Jacuzzi

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      A North Vancouver couple was surprised to discover an uninvited guest in their swimming pool on August 17.

      A black bear had broken down a section of their fence and took a leisurely dip in their pool. It later unwound in the Jacuzzi, and was thought to have enjoyed a bellini with a mini umbrella.

      The bear, who seems to have a taste for the finer things in life, is thought to have previously visited the yard, nibbling on bird seed as hors d'oeuvres.

      Here's the CTV report on the surprise visit.

      In April, a bear was tranquilized in South Vancouver.

      Bears have been seen in many North Shore and Tri-Cities neighbourhoods. More commonly, they are known to frequent many Davie Village bars and nightclubs, along with cougars, otters, panda bears, and unicorns.

      An otter is a slimmer bear. Or a hairier twink. Google can provide you with more information.

      How about water restrictions? Don't they apply to personal pools?

      Probably just needed a break from campaigning for the Green Party.

      Is that a Sun Bear?

      The white chest suggests this is a sun bear. They aren't even native to north america...
