As temperatures rose to 32 degrees Celsius, a huge black bear roamed a Los Angeles neighborhood to a city house to take a dip in a pool in a residential neighborhood Tuesday.

The California black bear was seen climbing over backyard fences. Los Angeles Police shared a photo of the animal swimming in the pool in the Grenada Hills neighborhood of the city.

Helicopters overhead are said to have caused the animal to stray into the area.

The bear ran through the neighborhood for a while until animal control officials hit it with a tranquilizer dart.

The bear has since been released back into the wild.
