Just like you, a bear in La Cañada Flintridge has had it with this damn Southern California heatwave!

Ginny Pitchford-Joyner snapped pics of the bear just chillin’ out in her pool on Wednesday. “It was pretty awesome,” she told CBS 2. “I’ve never seen such a big animal that close to me, you know?

Sheriff’s deputies were aware of the bear and sent an alert to area residents, warning them not to go outside – which, good for the bear…he clearly does not want to hear any of your shit while he is relaxing in the pool.  Now go grab him a a mojito or a fish or something.

There were no reports of injuries.
