Margarita-loving bear takes a dip in a California hot tub

An astonished California man captured video of a bear that climbed into his yard, luxuriated in the hot tub and drank his margarita.

That freshly blended margarita was actually meant for Mark Hough, who planned to enjoy it in the backyard of his Altadena, California home Friday afternoon. At first, he dismissed it as likely his neighbor moving around next door.

The sight he discovered in his backyard was not one he was expecting.

The tub was not heated - that Friday, temperature in Altadena peaked at 81 F (27 C) - but the bear must have found the jets entertaining. In the edited video above, you can see the bear bopping around in Hough's unheated Jacuzzi while dogs bark in the background.

Hough could not miss the opportunity to film the extremely human-like actions of the bear. But when it intensified, he got up to investigate and saw a bear climbing over his fence. After that, Hough lost sight of the bear.


"So he had his margarita, he had his Jacuzzi, and now he's ready for an hour nap", Hough told KABC.

Hough said the bear ultimately hustled away down the street.

Once he hopped out of the tub, Hough said the bear "popped out of the bushes, walked right over to the margarita, knocked it over and lapped it".

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Joana Warren said the department received six bear-sighting calls that same Friday but failed to find the creature.
