Bathing Bear Scratches Itch in South Lake Tahoe

A wildlife photographer caught a black bear on camera relaxing in a pool of water and having a nice scratch in South Lake Tahoe, California.

Video posted to Instagram by Toogee Sielsch on September 27 shows the bear having its self-care moment.

“Pleasure isn’t exclusive to humans!” Sielsch wrote in the caption.

Sielsch often films local wildlife, particularly South Lake Tahoe’s “urbanized black bear population”, and shares these videos to his Instagram account. Credit: Toogee Sielsch via Storyful
