    A family of black bears overtook an above-ground pool to cool down in the summer heat.

    The Basso family in New Jersey was surprised to find, not one, or two, but six bears in their backyard pool. Tim Basso filmed the mother bear and her five cubs play around in the pool, as his own family watched, bemused by their new pool guests. 

    "They came in, they experienced the pool, they got it, they seemed to enjoy themselves," Basso told WPVI news. "They did a little bit of damage on the pool toys and floats and whatnot, but all in all, I don't think it was a terrible experience." 

    While he didn't seem to mind so much, his younger daughter, who can be heard in the background, seemed a little annoyed by the intruders. "Are we gonna have to buy a new pool?" She can be heard asking just before she starts to cry.
