VIDEO: Bear takes dip in Monrovia family's swimming pool

MONROVIA, Calif. (KABC) -- A Monrovia family was surprised by an unexpected visitor recently: A bear that had wandered down from its wilderness den and decided to take a dip in their swimming pool.

It was all caught on video.

The family's dog found the visitor, well, unbearable and can be heard on video relentlessly barking at the stranger before it wandered off.

Spring is the time of the year when bears leave their winter dens and search through foothill neighborhoods for food.
