For bears, the spring season means it’s time to stretch their legs and relax, and what better way to do it than with a relaxing bath in a hot tub? The hot water, perhaps some salts, foam… oh, what a treat! Anyone may find heaven.
This is what Todd Trebony discovered on the veranda of his cabin in a woodland near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, while on a holiday with his lovely wife Mason.
The couple, taken aback by the event, watched as a black bear approached their patio and jumped into the jacuzzi, just like Pedro at home, to have a warm and pleasant bath and cool down. Todd seized his camera and recorded the incident without hesitation, and the video instantly went viral.
“There’s a wild black bear warming up in the hot tub, incredible.” “He’s having a good time,” Mason Trebony says on the recording.
The heartwarming video quickly spread over social media, where it was met with awe and surprise from people. It has around 1 million views as of today.
“Without much thought, the bear climbed the steps and into the jacuzzi, where he sits contentedly, enjoying the sunset and the warm water,” Todd explained.
In addition, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee is well-known among hikers and trout fishermen. However, what makes this park so well-known is that it is a natural haven for over 1,500 plantigrades.
These strange and amusing creatures frequently appear near human towns and approach trekkers in quest of food. In Mexico, for example, there have been several reports of bears migrating from the Cerro de Chipinque to live in Monterrey’s metropolitan districts.
