NAPLES, Fla. – A woman in Naples has been forced to grin and bear it as a big bear keeps swimming in her backyard pool.

Karen Bockrath noticed something was wrong when she found a large tear in her pool screen.

She then noticed that a bear was repeatedly coming to her home and taking dips in her pool.

Bockrath says the visits became so frequent that she pulled out her camera and started taking pictures of the bold bear.

Bockrath sends the shots to her 6-year-old grandson who prints the pictures and shares them at school.
