Most of us have accepted that summer is over, and we’re now welcoming fall by wrapping ourselves in sweaters, tucking our feet into our favorite Ugg boots and sipping on pumpkin spice lattes. But not this bear. Determined to keep the spirit of summer alive, this bear decided to go for a swim in somebody’s backyard pool.

The creature managed to break a fence and make its way into Dominic Lombardi’s yard in Hanover Township, Penn., a local ABC affiliate reports.

This is not the first bear to help itself to a little pool time. Last month, a black bear in southern California pulled the same shenanigans to help cool off amid searing temperatures. Must be a new trend.
