Bear roams Los Angeles neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

SYLMAR (CNS) - A 2-year-old male brown bear went rambling through a Sylmar neighborhood Monday night until wildlife officers tranquilized it.

The bear was spotted roaming in the 13300 block of Eldridge Avenue, near the campus of Mission College, about 9:15 p.m., according to Andrew Hughan of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The cub ran through yards and climbed fences until wildlife officers were able to shoot it with a tranquilizer dart, Hughan said.

The bear was secured and was being taken back to the Angeles National Forest late tonight, Hughan added.
