(NBC) - A family of bears was caught on camera this week just feet from swimmers in the waters of Lake Tahoe.

The bear cubs and their mom were caught cooling off Monday playing around near Pope Beach in California.

Cellphone video shows them splashing and wresting, before heading onto the beach and then off into a nearby forest.
