Things We Saw Today: This Hot-Tub Invading Bear Is Having a Better Day than All of Us

This came out a couple days ago, but bears are timeless! A California bear invaded the backyard of homeowner Mark Hough last Friday, and also helped himself to a margarita Hough had left outside. Hough describes it as “bobbling away having fun, playing with the chlorinator and the thermometer” in his jacuzzi. Afterwards, it lapped up his drink, climbed a tree, and took a two-hour nap. It’s like Goldilocks, but reversed!
