It seems even bears can't stand the heat.

A woman in North Caldwell, New Jersey, picked up her camera and then called police when she spotted a small black bear taking a dip in her backyard pool.

The bear tested the water with its feet, then moved on.

Police say the same bear was spotted poking through garbage in nearby Fairfield earlier in the week.
