A high school pool party in Tennessee last weekend got a lot wilder after a crew of black bears showed up.
The video shows the bears exploring an outdoor area at Chalet Village in Gatlinburg. They splash around in three different pools, stroll across the adjacent tennis court, and at one point, two of them engage in a bit of roughhousing. (Local news channel WBIR noted that those bears “obviously didn’t read the pool rules about not horsing around.”)
Johnson noted on YouTube that black bears are common in the Great Smoky Mountains and urged humans to be “be respectful, keep your distance, and don’t feed them.” (Excellent advice.)
