Bear Living Its Best Life In Gatlinburg

Posted at 3:35 PM, May 03, 2019

GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WBIR) – Is it possible to be jealous of a bear? A Tennessee couple on vacation spotted a bear in their hot tub of their cabin…appearing to enjoy a little R&R.

Elizabeth Strickland told WBIR, “I just had to share with y’all. I was in that same seat 14 hours ago!”

The bear and her three cubs hung out for a while and then left.

Wildlife officials want to warn tourists never to approach bears, especially those with young cubs.
