A pondkeeper in California was shocked to discover the mystery ‘vandal’ who had been toppling rockwork and moving equipment around his garden pond was in fact a bear.


Bob Bramley, from Oakhurst, checked his security cameras after he woke to find his Koi pond in disarray. The footage showed a North American bear bathing in the pond, which is located no more than 10ft from Mr Bramley's front door.
