Black Bear Enjoys a Dip in South Lake Tahoe Pond

A trail cam captured a lively black bear splashing around in a pond in South Lake Tahoe, California, on April 25.

Toogee Sielsch, whose @tahoetoogee Instagram account is filled with footage of South Lake Tahoe’s animal population, shared the footage to Instagram, writing, “You think you love bath time? Think again.”

“From a young age I’ve been more of a shower guy, but hey, I admire this South Lake Tahoe black bear’s bath time zeal!,” Sielsch wrote.
