Guy Films Bear Chilling In His Jacuzzi Drinking A Margarita, But It Doesn’t End There

A few days ago, Mark Hough from Altadena, California set out to enjoy a margarita in his backyard but an uninvited guest interrupted his plans. “So I got up, looked over in the bushes and lo and behold there’ a bear climbing up over my fence,” Hough told the Associated Press. Intrigued by the surroundings, the beast instantly abandoned whatever plans it had and decided to have some fun instead.

Like a sane human being, Hough retreated inside after spotting the bear. Later, however, he noticed the furry intruder enjoying itself in his jacuzzi. Hough probably realized no one would believe his story, so he recorded video. The footage shows the bear bubbling in the unheated hot tub, playing with the chlorinator and tossing the thermometer in the air. “He was playing having a grand old time,” the man added.

Then it “popped out of the bushes, walked right over to the margarita, knocked it over and lapped it,” Hough said. Once cool and boozed, the creature took a break. When Hough was talking to a neighbor, some oak leaves fluttered to the ground. The man looked up and saw the bear resting in the tree. “So he had his margarita, he had his Jacuzzi, and now he’s ready for a <…> nap,” Hough said.

According to the homeowner, the bear ultimately hustled away down the street. After the encounter, he made himself two margaritas to make up for the one he lost to the intruder. “It was an interesting Friday to say the least,” Hough said.

(h/t buzzfeed),

After Mark Hough’s wife came home, they decided to treat themselves, “we made a couple margaritas and went out to the pool to relax in the sun”

But his plans were interrupted by crackling branches

“I realized, ‘Oh my, there’s a bear coming into our yard!'”

“And lo and behold, he was in my Jacuzzi”

The swim must’ve exhausted the furry creature

So it, “walked right over to the margarita, knocked it over and lapped it”

And even took a two-hour nap!

The people instantly named the bear their 2018 summer hero

I live 5 miles from where this happened. My mom gets bears in her back yard ALL THE TIME, despite her 6 foot wall. We see them climbing her Persimmon Tree, and breaking all the lower branches to get to the fruit. But the BEST part of all is watching her night cam and seeing them doing their fun stuff.

This is how big one of the bear claws are. This particular claw belongs to a friend of mine who is a local Wildlife Ranger. kkkk-5b3e2...3b0378.jpg kkkk-5b3e2c43b0378.jpg

My dad told me about this story two days ago--I was cracking up. The bear took a nap after just one margarita? Pff--lightweight!
