It's not just a tourist destination, a mother bear and her cubs were caught on camera swimming in Lake Tahoe.
The caniforms have been frequently spotted around the area but not during the day when Pope Beach was full of people, according to KTVN.
"When bears are daytime active, that kind of sends up a little red flag to us that maybe they are acclimated to human beings and to human activity," Chris Healy, Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman told KTVN. "That situation is cute and cuddly until it isn't cute and cuddly anymore. All you need is one human, being stupid, getting too close to these bears."
