Black Bear Hops in a 'Bear-y' Nice Bath at Oregon Zoo

A playful black bear enjoyed a spring clean, hopping into a cool bath at Oregon Zoo in Portland.

Footage uploaded by Oregon Zoo shows Takoda the bear jumping into a bathtub for a ‘bear-y’ quick wash, before shaking himself off and hopping out.

According to the zoo, the 10-year-old bear weighs in at a sturdy 400 pounds, and his wading pool is a 300-gallon tub that caregivers keep filled with cold water as warm weather rolls in. Credit: Oregon Zoo via Storyful
