Watch this bear swim across a Maine lake

In the latest edition of crazy things happening in Maine, here is a video of a bear swimming across Crescent Lake in Raymond.

Captured on Oct. 20 by Lynda May Gundlach and posted on Facebook, the footage shows a black figure moving across the still water.

“We have a place on the lake and were removing a ladder from the dock when I looked up and saw something large swimming in the lake,” Gundlach said.

At first, Gundlach was not sure what the animal was. She thought it might have been a moose.

She later determined it was a bear swimming when she saw the animal head to shore.

“I have been going to this lake my entire life 50+ years and have never seen anything like this before,” Gundlach said.
