Bruiser is a rescued grizzly and one of the Single Vision’s residents – nature conservation center in Melrose, Florida, which cares and preserves endangered species.

Though the adorable footage is a bit oldie, it never fails to put smiles on everyone’s face. It was a hot summer day when Bruiser decided, well…to go for a swim.
