Bear takes a swim in LA neighborhood pools

A bear invited itself over for a dip in several backyard pools outside of Los Angeles Thursday night.

The unwelcome visitor could be seen pool-hopping his way through the neighborhood.

Police officers made a noisy attempt to chase the bear back to the hills to no avail.

After about an hour and a half, the bear decided his moon-lit swim was over, and ran home on its own.
