Can’t bear the heat: Bear filmed chilling out in California hot tub

When the summer heat gets unbearable, sometimes you need to paws and reflect in the water.

A bear was spotted lounging in a spa-style hot tub in Burbank, California, last week, where it was “taking a dip to cool off,” according to cops.

The animal was caught on camera enjoying the scenic vista near the Verdugo Mountains in a built-in Jacuzzi — which appeared to be turned off — as temperatures hit 91 degrees there last Friday.

“I don’t blame him,” an onlooker says with a chuckle in a clip released by the Burbank Police Department.

“Poor baby it’s hot,” one commentator wrote, while others suggested it was time to “bring him a beer.”

After taking the cooling dip, the bear climbed over a wall, heading to a tree behind the home, police said.

Burbank police have issued warnings to residents to keep their garbage locked up in order to avoid a similarly grizzly scene.

Earlier this month in nearby Altadena, a bear crashed a backyard cocktail hour, taking a dip in a hot tub and slurping down the homeowners’ margarita before taking a nap in a tree.
