A full-grown black bear splashed down in both the pool and hot tub of a couple in North Vancouver recently, and video footage of the afternoon dip has lit up online media.

"It’s just amazing," homeowner Tony Diering told CTV News. "You see funny things on YouTube, but to have it happening in your own backyard."

Diering captured footage of the bear on Monday, after it broke down a section of his wooden fence and invited itself in.

Even in British Columbia, which is filled with bears, direct encounters are rare, however Diering suspects that it is the same bear that recently helped itself to his bird feeder without even asking.

"About a month ago, the bear came and he was helping himself to the bird seed," he explained.

He included the bird feeder footage in his latest YouTube upload of the bear relaxing in the hot tub. The water excursion lasted about 15 minutes before the bear lost interest, he said.

With the delight of the bear sightings also come a bit of terror, however, and Diering said he and his wife aren't so sure they want the bear to visit again.

"In the neighborhood there are a lot of small kids and obviously it's a safety concern for our neighbors," he told CBC News. "I hope that he’ll just go eat some berries in the mountains instead."
