A couple discovered three black bear cubs relaxing in their hot tub
A couple on vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains in America was dazed when they discovered three black bear cubs relaxing in their hot tub.
Elizabeth Strickland and her boyfriend spotted one of the delightful little animals meander over the patio of the occasion home.
Elizabeth clicked a few photographs of the black bear as it enjoyed a soak on the porch of her Gatlinburg cabin.
Elizabeth said, “I saw one walk around a corner of the porch, and I ran into the bedroom to look out the windows at the hot tub and there they were.
“It was so cute, so we let them enjoy for a minute. Then they went on their merry way.”
This tourist destination is well known for its bear population, but when there are humans around, bears rarely come outside. Thus, it was a unique sight to see the bear cubs hanging around in the couple’s hot tub. Despite looking bloody adorable National Park Service (NPS) reminded tourists that bears are “dangerous and unpredictable wild animals and to treat any encounters with extreme caution.”
The NPS further explains: “Wilfully approaching within 150 feet, or any distance that disturbs or displaces a bear is illegal in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.”
Weirdly, this was not the first time that bear has been found relaxing soak in a hot tub.
Last year, in July, a resident of California, Mark Hough saw a bear in his hot tub when he was hanging around his garden.
