(KBJR/NBC)A bear seeking some relief from the summer heat decided to take a dip in a kiddie pool in Minnesota this week.

This bear was spotted in a backyard of a home in Duluth, Minn., on Monday.

The furry visitor was also spotted enjoying leftovers from garbage cans.

The homeowner says he wasn't frightened by the encounter.

"Growing up in the Northland, we are used to that. I was in Boy Scouts,  so we are trained what to do around certain animals.  I didn't really panic,” said homeowner Dave Zbaracki.
