Black Bear out for a Stroll in Palmer

black_bear1PALMER, Mass (WGGB) —  If you think this heat is ‘unbearable’… just imagine the surprise of one of our viewers out in his back yard enjoying a dip in the pool.

Along comes this… a black bear…  out for a stroll.

This home video was taken in palmer by Scott Tourville who says the bear is a repeat visitor.

The animal got as close as about 10 feet… maybe wondering about jumping in the pool to cool down.

But after a few seconds, it thinks better of it and saunters away though the bushes.
