When you look outside, you might expect to see some wildlife like birds or squirrels. One family got a huge surprise when they found an unexpected guest using their backyard, though.

Regina Keller of Virginia was with her boyfriend when she got a big surprise: a black bear had found her kiddie pool and settled in!

Regina captured the incredible moment on video as she and her boyfriend watched the big bear settle into the cool water, getting a break from the Virginian summer heat. Even if she could’ve chased the bear away, she didn’t want to — she was happy to let this content critter get some relief!

This peaceful experience has given many people a new perspective on a normally feared predator. Everyone wins — Regina and her boyfriend got to see a once-in-a-lifetime sight, and the bear got to cool down when he needed it most!
