Another year is nearly in the books, and 2015 did not disappoint, if we use amazing animal videos as the metric. We love a good animal video here at DNews -- whether based around new research or just because the visuals are downright fun, cute, or scary. Here we've collected some of our favorites of the year -- from bears in a pool to elephants chasing birds to drones taking a beating from animals defending their turf, what a year it's been. So sit back, click the white arrows and enjoy these animals achieving Internet fame they'll never even know about.
In this unforgettable clip viewed by millions of people, a family of bears storms a New Jersey family's backyard and finds its way into a nice, cool pool for a summer swim in the August heat.
