Bear Cub Loves Ball and Pool

Info from Licensor: "We live in Seminole County, Florida and our property backs up to the Wekiva River, which is designated as a National Wild and Scenic River. It is not unusual for us to see Florida black bears, deer, bobcats, coyotes, raccoons and numerous other animals pass through our backyard. To be clear, we do not feed or try to attract ANY wild animals, but we learned years ago that bears are especially curious animals and they will stop to check out and play with a ball or just about any other interesting object that might be in their path. As a result, over the past several years we have added several cameras to capture the action.
In this clip, a mother and cub had visited us earlier in the day and returned in the afternoon, as if the mother knew that the cub enjoyed playing on our 'playground,' which includes a few balls and, more recently, a small kiddie pool. The bear cub plays with a red horse ball and splashes in the pool."
