    How Bizzarre!

    I had drained our pool to the halfway mark this fall. I had put the solar cover and another cover on, to catch the leaves. (They were floating on the top). We awoke this morning to find both covers away from the pool. What he heck!? Went out to find the muddy paw prints of the local bear all over the side of the pool, the covers both ripped in numerous places, the garbage strewn all over the yard, and a bear-sized pile of poo in the middle of it all. (No picture of that, lol.) cannot figure out why the bear would be interested in a midnight swim, at all! I couldn't really tell if he walked around the pool or not. There were places it looked like the algae could have been disturbed, not certain. (Pump broke at end of season.)

    Here are the pics:

    You can lead a horse to (clear) water, but you can't force him to swim in it!

    That's funny ! Maybe you should get one of those outdoor cameras that hunters use and strap it to something nearby and catch him in the act. 😎

    Exactly what I said when I saw the muddy prints!

    There was a trail cam set up, but it was pointed toward the garbage cans, not the pool! A tree was in the way, only got one picture of him on a path with a different camera. I will be glad when it finally decides to hibernate!

    Trail cam. I couldn't think of the proper name. 😎

    Maybe you should leave a pail of water out in case he's looking for a drink. Better the open and easy to get to bucket rather than your pool
