Residents On Alert After Bear Sighting In Glendale
GLENDALE (CBS) — Residents in Glendale are on alert after a bear was spotted wandering the streets.
The sighting occurred around 8 p.m. Saturday just west of Deukmejian Wilderness Park near Frederick Avenue and Santa Carlotta Street.
The bear, which was apparently seen rummaging through garbage cans, was caught on our cameras as it went door-to-door.
Officers with the Glendale Police Department and Fish and Game officials combed the area, warning residents to stay indoors.
Both Frederick Avenue and Santa Carlotta Street were blocked off Saturday evening.
Ann Sterling, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, spoke to one resident moments after police told her the bear was right outside of her home.
“The bear was just sitting there on the street right here by the sidewalk and then what he ended up doing was going up into the hills,” the resident told us. “What the Fish and Game apparently tried to do is get him to go back up into the hills.”
