An adorable Asian black bear cub knows how to beat the heat and enjoy the small things, like jumping into a pool on a hot day.
For this video, the young moon bear, named Georges, was filmed splashing around in an ice cold bath at the Animals Asia Bear Rescue Centre in Vietnam. Apparently, this bear has found his trick and will continue to play around in the pool all summer, enjoying the simple pleasures of life. The staff says “Georges is a real water baby and can be found taking a daily dip during the warm weather.”
Georges happily splashes about in the pool, and we’re glad this bear has a much more peaceful life now than what it could have been. The bear was rescued along with his brother Baruffa, after they were confiscated from bile farm traffickers in Sa Dung, Dien Bien. The commercial bear bile and paw trade is causing many of Asia’s bear species to reach near extinction. Click here for more information on the bile trade and Moon Bears.
