CaughtOnCamera: This Couple Has No Idea They’re Standing Next To A Black Bear

PASADENA, Calif. — Dry weather and high temperatures likely combined to draw out a California black bear from the Angeles National Forest this week and in one case onto the front porch of a Pasadena home, according to wildlife experts. “It must be so dry up there and it’s hot and now he’s looking for something to eat,” said Ricky Whitman, a spokeswoman for the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “Closer to where there’s garbage and where the people are is something that would lure them down.” The drought affecting Southern California has dried up the vegetation that the bears would normally feast on, said Whitman. A bear wandered Thursday afternoon for a couple of hours between homes near the Eaton Canyon Park Golf Course close to Old House Road and Sierra Madre Villa Avenue. Police and California Department of Fish and Wildlife wardens were on scene, according to reports. Janice Mackey a spokeswoman for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, said the bear made it back into the forest unassisted.

"If one of the parade goers sees something suspicious, and what I mean by that is they walk up and put a bag down and they walk away from that bag, have the courage and the insight and the willingness to engage and call that to the attention of local law enforcement officers," he said.     Police Lt. Tracey Ibarra said the department has spent months working with businesses along the parade route to encourage them to tell their customers that if they "see something, say something." She also said police have coordinated with business owners so the department will have 24-hour access to their private security cameras if they are needed.     Sanchez said 1,100 to 1,200 uniformed and covert officers will patrol the parade route. Also, more bomb sniffing dogs will be used. The dogs […]
