Black Bear Enjoys Refreshing Splash in Pool at Oregon Zoo

Takoda, a black bear residing at the Oregon Zoo in Portland, Oregon, enjoyed a refreshing dip in his 300-gallon wading pool.

Footage of the 400-pound black bear shows Takoda beating the heat by splashing around in the water.

Amy Cutting, overseer of the zoo’s Great Northwest area, said of Takoda: “He’s quite a goofy bear. He was just cooling down and having some fun on a nice spring day.” Credit: Oregon Zoo, @OregonZoo via Storyful
