Bruiser the Bear Takes a Swim in Sanctuary's Pool: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Florida animal sanctuary shared video of a brown bear beating the summer heat with a dip in an above-ground pool.


Single Vision, a sanctuary for endangered and exotic animals in Melrose, shared a video on YouTube showing Bruiser the bear climbing the ladder and jumping into the above-ground pool while a black bear named Honey lounges nearby."


The temp has been in the 90`s the last few days, and I`m so desperate to beat the heat that I would gladly join Bruiser the Bear in the pool.

This adorable bear gets to enjoy pool time every day; he`s living large in the sanctuary for exotic and endangered animals.
