Massive bear seen wandering through California neighborhood safely caught by wildlife crews


MONROVIA, Calif. (WIAT & CBS) — On Friday morning, a large brown bear was seen wandering in a California neighborhood.

Wildlife officials and curious onlookers watch as the animal roams through the residential streets and into nearby alleys in Monrovia.

The bear was spotted around 4:30 a.m.

At least one vehicle came perilously close to the bear in the middle of a street, driving past in the pre-dawn darkness.

The massive bear made its way into the front yards of several homes.

After hours of enjoying its time in the many yards in the neighborhood, wildlife crews have officially tranquilized the bear in order to capture it.
