Video: Bear cools off in water in Angeles National Forest amid scorching temperatures

Amid scorching temperatures across Southern California this week, a large male bear was spotted trying to escape the heat in the Angeles National Forest on Tuesday.

Temps climbed into the triple-digit range in some areas. The bear was seen walking up to a shallow pool of water and taking a dip in an effort to cool off.

Judging by the look on his face, the bear seemed to be more than comfortable laying in the water under a path of shade.
