Gotta Watch: Bear invades pool, TV news set

Bear sightings caught on video!

We expect bears to wander through the wilderness or even parade inside a zoo. See what happens when the "unexpected" happens and a bear is caught wading in a family's pool. We've obtained video of bears crashing a TV news set and bumping into an unexpected man texting on his phone, too.

  1. A bear in the woods

    Audio was mostly non-existent so never heard what the bear "did" in the pool.

    Hopefully it made a trip to the "woods" to take care of business first, if you catch my drift.

    >> We expect bears to wander through the wilderness

    Not in a world where water is becoming scarce and temperatures have soared to their highest levels in over a thousand years. Animal migrations and invasions of spaces once formerly inhabited by humans are becoming quite commonplace as irreversible global warming takes hold.

    >> I live near the Cherokee Natl forest but have never seen a bear

    You have never seen a bear because the forest is still giving them the water they need to cool off. As humans invade their former living areas and irreversible man-made global warming takes hold, animal invasion is becoming more commonplace.
