A bear had a gala time taking a dip in a hot tub and drinking margarita in a California man's backyard on Friday.

Mark Hough, a resident of Altadena, California, was settling down to enjoy a glass of margarita when he heard a sound in his backyard. While he initially dismissed the noise as coming from one if his neighbor’s houses, he went out to investigate the sounds when they continued.

The sight he discovered in his backyard was not one he was expecting.

“So I got up, looked over in the bushes, and lo and behold there's a bear climbing up over my fence,” Hough said, the Los Angeles Times reported. Since bear sightings were a common phenomenon in his area, Hough did not initially think much of it and went back inside his house.

However, after a while, he came out to find that not only had the intruder not left his backyard, he was happily “bobbling away in the Jacuzzi enjoying himself.”

The hot tub was not heated and the jets were turned on, which all the more tempted the bear to take a dip in it. The furry mammal also played around with the chlorinator and thermometer in the tub. “He was playing, having a grand old time,” he added.

Hough could not miss the opportunity to film the extremely human-like actions of the bear.

Having had his fill of the cold water, the bear decided to take a tour of the backyard, “popped out of the bushes, walked right over to the margarita, knocked it over and lapped it,” Hough said. After that, Hough lost sight of the bear.

A few hours had passed and Hough was talking to his neighbor when he again heard a rustling noise, only to look up and find the bear snoozing away on a tree.

“So he had his margarita, he had his Jacuzzi, and now he's ready for an hour nap,” Hough said.

The last time Hough spotted the bear was when it was lazily strolling down the street. “It was an interesting Friday to say the least,” he remarked, adding that he made himself a couple of margaritas after the series of encounters, to make up for the cocktails the bear had knocked over.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Joana Warren confirmed the department had received six bear-sighting calls Friday but every time wildlife personnel went to check out the reported sightings, they failed to find any bears in the areas. The reason for so many bear sightings near human civilization in Altadena is because the city is surrounded by wilderness.

An incident like this serves as a reminder of how behavioral patterns of animals like bears are similar to that of humans. Only last month, the video of a bear behind a glass window at a zoo mimicking the actions of a 5-year-old boy went viral on the internet.
