This Big Grizzly Bear Slowly Climbs Up The Pool Ladder. Now Watch His Hysterical Belly Flop.

Grizzly bears are known to have an inherent need and ability to explore. According to the ‘Western Wildlife Outreach’ they are highly intelligent and inquisitive creatures, both their memory and “smarts” are cultivated and exhibited by their need and talent in tracking down sources of food. An adult female grizzly bear can weigh anywhere from 280 – 400 pounds and adult males can be a whopping 400 – 800 pounds. You can only imagine how much force a nice sized belly flop would do to the water in a tiny pool…

Before we get into today’s hilarious and entertaining video of a very special Grizzly Bear who has a very special talent let’s just go over some facts and history of the legendary creature:

A grizzly’s ability to reason, as you will see in this amazing video, isn’t limited to their survival instincts in getting fed. Can you imagine having all that fur on you in the heat of summer? Just the thought of being out in the oppressive summer heat without any water to cool off in is unbearable, excuse the pun! If there were a special Bear Olympics I’m pretty sure this big guy would take the gold medal!

Perhaps one of the main physical traits that makes grizzlies stand out is the large and very noticeable hump on their backside shoulders. You can easily spot it on the bear in the video and it’s not extra fat as many assume it to be, instead it’s a large muscle.

It gets worked out a lot and needs to be bulky because it’s the main power source for their forelimbs. All day long they use the hump muscles to walk, run, dig, climb, and it greatly helps them in their search for food.

In fact, a wild grizzly spends more time than any other type of bear digging for food, whether it be the ground or logs, they tear through things easily thanks to their powerful muscle.

Grizzlies have many specially honed skills that help to ensure their survival. One happens to be their sense of smell which is sharper than a hound dog’s! They can smell food, such as an animal carcass, from up to 20 miles away if they are upwind.

That’s why anyone who is spending time in bear country hiking or camping should always use special odor-proof plastic bags and bear-safe canisters to store any food.

Once a bear gets a whiff of bacon or trail mix (they have a sweet tooth just like us and love sugar!) they will seek out the source. In the end, simple precautions when storing and transporting food will greatly reduce the chances of a run in with a hungry grizzly.

Another skill that grizzly bears have evolved is their speed. The massive animals can easily outrun any human on Earth, including Usain Bolt. According to worldatlas, they can run up to 35mph comfortably. Whether it’s downhill, uphill, or through difficult terrain, a grizzly will inevitably overtake any person on foot and even someone on a bike would probably lose.

Just as you can’t outrun a grizzly, you can’t outswim one either, not even Michael Phelps could if he tried. Bears are naturally talented swimmers who don’t think twice about plunging into a freezing cold lake or river to cross it or search for tasty fish.

Their shoulder hump muscles help propel their bulky bodies through the water while their fat protects them from the cold. They can doggy paddle for hours at a time and dive under the surface to hunt for food.

Even though grizzlies are excellent swimmers, it’s polar bears who reign supreme in the water. Polar bears have been observed swimming hundreds of miles straight without taking a single break. They do this in freezing arctic waters and while most dips last a few hours, some swim for days at a time.

All the observation and research done on grizzlies clearly shows they have exceptional talent at running and swimming, but what about diving?!? In today’s featured video: You can see for yourself how a grizzly bear goes about the art of navigating a pool ladder and diving into the water. Well actually it’s less like diving and more like an epic belly flop!

Grab a towel (because you may get splashed) and get ready to watch this bear cool off in an above ground pool. His movements are astoundingly human-like, it’s quite amazing to see. Even if you’re not so impressed by it, at the very least the video will give you a good laugh for the day!

We’ll leave you with one final note to ponder; if a bear dives in a pool and no one sees it, did it really happen? 🙂

Hopefully you enjoyed this big funny bear as much as I did. Let us know what you think.

The Grillo family has been getting an unexpected visitor on their porch for the past few weeks.  They weren’t really sure what their best course of action was to going to be to handle this specific situation. Everyday a black bear would show up around the same time of day and take a nice stroll through the backyard, exploring the Grillo family’s property. A few times the bear got a little too curious and caused a little bit of damage and left a mess. Finally on this day they had enough of their new neighbor taking over their property when ever he felt like it.

The patriarch of the family Mr. Grillo grabbed his video camera and started filming the bear doing his usual walk across the property like he owns the place.  Then the bear ascends the staircase on to the porch which he likes to do most of the time. Mr. Grillo knew his wife was sick and tired of this big old black bear taking over their backyard so he yelled for his wife when he saw the bear about to make himself comfortable on the porch.

At first there was no response, however soon Mr. Grillo’s intimidator/wife Mrs. Grillo swings the door open like she is ready to have a championship boxing match against Mike Tyson in his prime! She comes around and you can tell by her body language and voice she is not messing around and she means business!

Mrs. Grillo makes her presence known and stands up to the black bear with absolutely no fear. Instead of running the opposite way like most people would do if they were standing toe to toe with a big old black bear she walks right towards the confused animal! I know if I was her I would be terrified and immediately run back inside, but she doesn’t even flinch.

Have you ever been in a similar situation?

Bears are one of the strongest predators on the planet. They can smell a scent 20 miles away upwind, run upwards of 40 mph, are have teeth and claws that are over an inch long. Attributes like these mean that they are built for hunting and it’s always best to try and avoid them.

These days it seems that there are more and more run-ins between people and bears, specifically black bears. They have proven to be incredibly resilient animals who’ve learned to adapt to our human ways and that has led to an uptick in the number of incidents.

Oftentimes the bears are simply being bears and looking for an easy meal. They smell a birdfeeder or trash and will rummage through it to get a bite to eat. On a few occasions, bears have been known to break into cars to get at a candy bar or tasty treat inside, and left the vehicle torn to shreds in their relentless pursuit of a snack.

In many states when a bear becomes a nuisance, by continuously breaking into dumpsters or other sources of food and being too comfortable around humans, they get tagged and trapped. The bear is then relocated far away from where it was captured and released in the hopes that it will not find its way back.

This was what authorities in Florida were trying to do when they received reports of a 400 pound black bear wandering through a residential neighborhood in Alligator Point, Florida. The bear was spotted going through the trash before entering into a home and had already been ear tagged, so they knew it wasn’t the first time this particular bear had wandered too close for comfort.

After locating the massive animal they hit it with a tranquilizer dart, but that spooked the bear and it took off towards the ocean. The bear started to swim out into the Gulf of Mexico just as the tranquilizer was taking effect.

If he went out too far, he would certainly drown and so a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) biologist looking on went in right after him. Adam Warwick jumped into the ocean without even thinking twice about his own health and safety in order to try and rescue the huge bear. He swam out to it, grabbed the bear around the neck, and started kicking his way back towards shore.

When he first reached the bear it was still awake, but the tranquilizer was quickly causing it to lose its ability to move. The panicked bear struggled to stay afloat and like any drowning animal, it tried to climb on Adam to stay above the water, pushing him down in the process.

Thankfully for Adam, the bear stopped struggling soon afterwards and he reached shallower water. Working calmly, he grabbed the bear by the scruff and dragged him as far as he could using the water to buoy the bear’s massive weight.

Once they reached the shore, it became too difficult to move the heavy animal and so a backhoe was brought in and picked up the groggy bear. From the beach it was loaded onto a truck and driven far away, eventually being relocated to Osceola National Forest.

In the end, the bear survived the traumatizing ordeal and suffered no injuries. Incredibly, Adam suffered only one scratch from his daring rescue mission.

At any moment the semi-lucid bear could have easily bit or swiped at him, but it never once even tried to. All in all, it seems that the worst case scenario of the tranquilized bear running into the ocean turned into the best case scenario of a successful rescue with no one harmed.

This man is a true hero and legend.

The Most Incredible Thing Happens When THIS Horse Finds The Blue Kiddy-Pool!

image via – youtube.com

There’s something about a kiddie pool that brings out the inner child in everyone, from kids to adults and animals alike. When you see one it’s hard to not jump in and go crazy. The convenient little pools of refreshing water are especially irresistible on a hot summer day.

After all, nothing cools you down faster and feels more invigorating than a dip in an ice cold pool. As it turns out, horses are not immune to the special magic of kiddie pools. If given the chance they will splish splash and take a bath in one in a heartbeat.

Which is why one man decided to set up a kiddie pool for his special horse named Duke. He knew Duke really liked water and would appreciate it, but he didn’t know just how much fun he’d end up having! As you can see, Duke’s inner child came out in full force when he saw the kiddie pool. He stepped right into it and began pawing hilariously at the water.

He was churning up a storm and sending water flying everywhere, much to the delight of his human companion and son who were looking on. Not content to simply splash around, he laid down and immersed his whole body, really cooling himself off in the process.

Luckily for him the pool held up through all the commotion and didn’t bust wide open! Horses are known for loving water and judging by all the fun he’s having Duke is no exception. Check out the video for more.

They Film As The Dark Clouds Come Rolling In. But What Happens To The Pool Is The UNTHINKABLE!

image via – youtube.com

You would think that a city that calls itself “The Big Friendly” would have some warm and pleasant weather to offer its citizens and visitors. However friendly Oklahoma City may be, its weather often proves to be anything but that. The city that’s home to Oklahoma’s state capitol happens to sit smack dab in the middle of America’s infamous tornado alley, making it also the unofficial tornado capital of the entire United States.

All of those tornadoes come hand in hand with other types of severe, nasty weather. The supercells that form in the skies over the region, which spawn the powerful and deadly tornadoes, also play host to lightning, gusty winds, driving rains, and punishing hailstones. The effects of these storms can end up being devastating and their costs enormous, as was the case on May 16, 2010.

On that Sunday afternoon a large supercell thunderstorm developed and unleashed its fury as it moved across the region. Anyone below in its path rushed to find shelter and the safety it provided from the massive hail stones which rained down all around. There were so many icy stones falling that they even turned one man’s swimming pool into a giant churning vat of ice water, that actually appeared to be boiling!

Check out the insane footage he shot of his backyard pool getting pummeled as he looks on in absolute shock. It’s pretty incredible and shows just how powerful mother nature can be. According to the NOAA, the wind speeds this storm whipped up averaged 50 mph, with gusts of over 60 mph measured.

Baseball, softball, and golfball-size hail were reported as well as hail drifts that were several feet deep in some areas. When it was all over, the storm ended up costing an estimated $595 million dollars in damages, making it one of the costliest hailstorms in North America on record. Think of all the broken windows, dented cars, smashed up trees and vegetation that must have caused.

Hopefully, the man who recorded his pool churning and roiling had insurance to cover whatever damages he incurred!

This Girls Insides Sucked Out of Her Body When She Sat On The Suction In a Pool. THIS Is What Happened!

image via – youtube.com

Salma Bashir was just five years old when she went on vacation with her family to visit Alexandria, Egypt.  She had been splashing around playing in the kiddie pool when she accidentally sat on the main suction valve.  In an instant her whole life changed. Even though she screamed for help and the lifeguard on duty jumped right in to rescue her, it was too late.  

When the lifeguard reached her, he couldn’t get her out.  Salma’s father rushed over and tried to get her out of the pool as well, but the force from the suction valve was too strong.  Finally, a couple of people were able to get her out of the pool, but the damage had already been done. When they carried her out of the water the full horror of her situation set in; her small intestines had been ripped out of her body by the pool suction.

The pain and trauma from what she had just been through caused Salma to pass out.  After doctors assessed her injuries, they gave her just weeks to live. There was still hope though, Salma could get on the wait list for a transplant and with nothing to lose her parents decided they had to try.  The family moved to Pennsylvania for her treatment and after raising $300,000 and waiting a year and a half, she finally had the surgery.  

While she had hoped and prayed that the surgery would be the start of a new, normal life, it turned out to be worse than anyone imagined.  Salma’s body rejected the small intestines transplant after just 6 months. She had to have it removed and her large intestines and gall bladder were taken out as well. 

In addition, her stomach had to remain open to the point she could see her insides. If she wants to try another transplant again, she’d need to have her small intestines, large intestines, stomach, liver, and pancreas all replaced at an estimated cost of $3 million.  There is no guarantee of success and yet Salma wants to try.

Through all the pain, surgeries, and disappointment, Salma has remained steadfastly strong and determined.  She hasn’t given up on healing and getting better, she still smiles and chews her mother’s food just to get a taste, even if she can’t swallow it and must spit it out. 

Salma’s outgoing and naturally charming, she’s already raised over $75,000 on her GoFundMe page and has over 100K followers on her ‘Slay With Salma’ Facebook page where she does makeup tutorials.  Even though she has faced setbacks and enormous obstacles, she hasn’t let them get her down and continues to fight. Hopefully she will prevail and get the surgery she needs and deserves.

You Will Not Believe Your Eyes When You See How This Pup Saved THIS Toddler’s Life!

image via – youtube.com

Experts believe that man and the canine first became friends and later domesticated anywhere from 16,000 – 32,000 years ago. Over thousands of years the bond between our two species has become even more intertwined. The canine is almost always refferred to as “Man’s Best Friend”. Anybody who has one of these incredible fur babies can attest to just how strong a friendship and bond can be between a pup and his human. Over 1000’s of years dog’s have evolved with humans and sometimes this evolution can be visually striking as the sizes and shapes of canine’s continues to change.

Whether its burrowing into small holes to catch badgers and rabbits, being a home security system, cleaning up rats and other rodents, being a service dog for the handicapped, tracking scents in hunting or police work, saving people from fires, herding sheep for farmers our furry little friends can do just about anything! Sometimes just sitting on the couch and binge-watching some shows with your pup can be one of the most fun and fulfilling ways to spend your day.

In today’s incredible video we will be featuring the story of a young 14 month old boy named Stanley, Labrador Retriever named Bear, and his mother Patricia.  If you have ever had children you know what’s they get past their first birthday, toddlers start to be able to explore their environment. This is obviously just a natural and healthy part of childhood development, however during the time the child is this age, you have to remain extra vigilant to make sure your baby doesn’t wander off into a dangerous situation.

Stanley like many other kids his age, loves to shadow and follow behind his mom wherever she goes. Whether it’s to the kitchen, the yard or to the driveway your toddler is most likely to be right behind you kind of like a dog. On one particular morning mama Patricia had been doing some gardening with Stanley by her side getting some fresh air, sunshine and some exercise.

When Patricia finished up the job in her garden, she headed to the garage to put away all the gardening tools. After she put the tools back in their proper place, she looked around and Stanley had vanished. Patricia like any other mom immediately began to panic screaming out his name, searching everywhere and hoping and praying he would just show up safe.

When she got to the backyard she saw Stanley in the pool, but he wasn’t swimming, he was in the pool floating face up, but he was unconscious. She jumped into the pool grabbed him and luckily he was breathing but still not conscious.

Somehow, Bear the Labrador Retriever sensed that his little brother could possibly be in grave danger as he heard him splashing around in the water. Without hesitation, the dog leaped into action, jumping into the pool, swimming beneath Stanley, lifting him up to the surface and finally turning the toddler face up so he wouldn’t drown or swallow any water! What is even more amazing, is Bear stayed underneath the boy, keeping him floating above the surface and stayed as still as possible so the boy wouldn’t tip over sideways and go back under the water’s surface!

Patricia carried him out of the water and brought him to the local fire station where he regained conscious and made a complete recovery! His big bro Bear had saved his life and became a local hero among the community! Good boy! 🙂
