Black Bear Goes Into Full Relaxation Mode After Winning Fight For Kiddie Pool

Bears are interesting creatures.

On one hand, they can look harmless and cute, making us laugh with sometimes extremely humanlike behavior, like taking selfies or breaking into a house, raiding the fridge, and refusing to leave…

But on the other, much more lethal hand, bears are an absolute wreaking ball of a killing machine, perhaps the best walking the planet.

Still, there’s no denying how absolutely fascinating these creatures can be, and this latest video gives us yet another example.

On July 25th in North Bend, Washington, two bears who grew up together tried to beat the heat by jumping in a kiddie pool. Unfortunately, it wasn’t big enough for the two of them and something had to be done.

They had a quick tussle, with one taking a fast win, causing his friend to scurry away.

And that look on his face when laying down in the pool alone, head resting on the edge?

Absolute pure bliss.

Instant inter-dimensional meditation, relaxation, and zen wrapped up into an exhale of chill and victory.

“These two bear siblings have been hanging around a lot together. Always playing with the balls around the yard or climbing the trees, but especially wrestling with each other.

This time, the victor… after a short round… lays herself down into the perfect Zen position to soak up the sun.”

Ahh to be that bear today…
