(Scroll down for video) A man was surprised to see a black bear enjoying his backyard swimming pool in Pennsylvania, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.

The man and his family learned about the bear’s adventures on Thursday, when they watched video footage captured by their surveillance cameras.

The video showed that the bear did not take just a quick swim, it swam in the pool at three different times. The bear managed to get into the backyard and went straight to the pool.

The bear can then be seen approaching the pool and drinking some water before jumping in.

Dominic Lombardi said that he was surprised that his pool did not collapse under the heavy weight of the bear that weighs about 200 pounds.

The only damage the bear caused was busting a beachball that was floating in the swimming pool. After the bear has enough of the pool, it quietly left.
