Bears Enjoy Nighttime Frolic in Lake Tahoe Pond

Three bears enjoyed a nighttime play in a pond at South Lake Tahoe, California.

Footage captured by Toogee Sielsch shows the bears taking a dip in the pond while at times rumbling with each other.

“These bears are rolling together!” Sielsch wrote an Instagram post on September 30 that featured the video. “Lack of competition for food sources is changing their behavior.”
