(VIDEO) Yurok Tribe Gets Up-Close Footage of Black Bear Swimming in the Klamath River

Yurok tribal members were giving a tour on the Klamath River last week when they encountered a cinnamon black bear gracefully propelling its big ol’ bear body across the water.

Luckily, someone had a nice camera on hand and the tribe shared this awesome moment on Facebook page today.

The video posted above shows the bear swimming to a nearby riverbank before taking off full speed up the surrounding hillside.

Someone get that bear a bike and sign them up for the next triathlon.
