    animals (black bears) beat the heat


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     beckybear says throughout the years, many bears have taken a dip in her dog's watering tub, leaving it looking like a mud puddle before finally waddling back into the woods. She says she can't blame them for taking a dip. 'Imagine what it would be like to don a heavy winter fur coat in sweltering hot summer weather; makes me sweat buckets just thinking about it!'
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    Un`bear`ably Hot!


    My doggie swimming pool and dog water tub have turned into a watering hole for the local wildlife.  They sure know how to beat the heat!  LOL!!


    See attached 10 photos.


    Here's a link to a video I made of the black bears taking a dip in the pool.


    Photos taken in Northern, Wisconsin.

    (can my hometown name remain private to protect the where abouts of the wildlife?)


    Enjoy the photos and the video!
