Bears, Mountain Lion Caught Prowling Near Monrovia Homes

MONROVIA (CBSLA.com) — Two bears and a mountain lion were seen prowling around a Monrovia neighborhood overnight.

CBS2’s Kara Finnstrom reports the two bears were seen walking near Norumbega Drive and Bradoaks Avenue around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday night.

A photojournalist captured a large dark brown bear followed by a smaller, lighter-colored bear – thought to be a mother and perhaps older cub – not far from a “Beware of wildlife” sign in neighborhood located in the foothills of San Gabriel Valley.

Open trash cans were seen on the street nearby where the bears were spotted.

Monrovia police said they did not receive any reports or respond to any bear sightings overnight.

Less than an hour later, the same photojournalist captured a mountain lion scurrying away from oncoming traffic near Canyon and Ridgeside Drive.

Authorities warn anyone who sees a mountain lion to remain inside and not approach the animal. Residents were also urged to secure any outside trash cans.
