Margarita-loving bear crashes couple's hot tub party

It also took a snooze in a nearby tree.

A bear has been spotted bathing in a bubbling hot tub and sipping margaritas in Southern California.

Mark Hough and his wife were using the hot tub in their garden in Altadena on Friday when they heard rustling.

When they went to investigate the noise, they saw a bear climbing over the fence.

Cue a quick retreat to their house and a video filmed from a safe position.

In the video shared by Mr Hough, the bear can be seen sitting in the tub, enjoying a soak.

He said that, afterwards, the bear knocked over the margaritas he and his wife had been enjoying and licked them up.

Mr Hough later spotted the bear taking a snooze in an oak tree before it disappeared down the street.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department said it received six bear-sighting calls that day, but were unable to track it down.
