This guy was smarter than your average bear, or maybe not.

This is not how you react to a black bear invading your back yard.

Home surveillance video shows a man lounging by a pool in Massachusetts, being startled by a curious bear over the weekend. The video, shared on Facebook Sunday by Dawn Bete, shows the bear wandering into the backyard and trying a sip of the pool water.

The man is only a few yards away and appears to be sleeping, or at least doesn't react to the bear.

The bear notices him, though, and pads over to the man and his lounge chair. It sniffs his foot, then nudges it.

Watch how the man reacted below and read more HERE. We are pretty sure you wouldn't pick up your phone and try to take a picture of a bear nudged your foot.
