ROCKAWAY TOWNSHIP (AP) — A mama bear and her five cubs decided to beat the heat in a backyard pool in Morris County.

The Basso family watched as the bruins swam, used the waterslide and played with the backyard swing set.

Tim Basso tells News 12 New Jersey his 3- and 5-year-old daughters weren't eager to share their toys.

Basso says it was a weird situation.

His family watched the bears from inside the safety of their home.

The bears left after nearly an hour.
