While trying to extend (= dig out dirt) Aruma’s (who is a full grown spectacled/ andean bear) pool he caught us in the act and we had to leave in a rush and our wheelbarrow behind. He therefore decided to play with it for a while in the pool. He had a lot of fun splashing around with his new toy. After we took the video it only took him one bite to destroy the tire. The footage was taken from safe distance and behind an electric fence.
Thanks to Pablo, Yanis, Matthieu (later also Rachel, Lewis and Andy) for digging support!
