Shannon Lievense said she was visiting her parents' home for Father's day when she noticed some footprints near the pool.

That's when she spotted the bear run from around the corner and jump into the pool.

"He continued to play around for about 20 minutes. We watched him play with the different rafts, and my baby's pool toys," Lievense explained.

Lievense said bears frequent the neighborhood and residents know to give them space.
