LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. (AP) — Game wardens used bacon and honey to capture a wild bear fond of wandering into neighborhoods north of downtown Los Angeles.
The Sheriff’s Department says in a news release that the bear was trapped early Wednesday and was taken to a wildlife sanctuary in northern San Diego County.
The bear had come out of the mountains above Glendale, La Crescenta and La Canada Flintridge on several occasions to raid trash cans. In July, he was returned to the wild when found snoozing in a neighborhood tree.
The state Department of Fish and Game prefers to relocate bears in the wild after they show up in urban areas.
But this time, wardens decided it was in the best interest of the bear to send him to a safe and secure facility.
