Bear Captured In California Neighborhood


By KMVT News

Baldwin Park, California (CNN) A bear spotted wandering around a California neighborhood is back in the wild.

Wildlife officials captured the bear in Baldwin Park Friday morning.

Several neighbors called 911 to report the bear climbing walls, fences and a tree.

Crews tranquilized the animal, loaded it onto a truck and drove it the wilderness.

Wildlife officials say the bear was probably drawn to the area by the smell of food and was too far away from the woods to find its way back.
