PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — A bear was seen wandering around a Pasadena neighborhood Monday night. Pasadena police said reports started coming in around 7 p.m.

The bear was seen in the Hastings Ranch Neighborhood, on Riviera Drive. One witness saw the bear in a backyard.

Neighbors spotted the bear strolling down a sidewalk just before sundown, while people were out jogging and walking their dogs. “It’s just really out of the ordinary because I know bears show up a lot more in the hills, but it’s pretty suburban over here so it’s really shocking,” said one Hastings Ranch resident.

Pasadena Animal Services and game wardens went looking for the bear, but weren’t able to track it down.
