Bear Cub Sneaks Inside Duarte Garage

The little bear was feasting on trash in a Duarte garage Monday before he fled with his mother back into the forest, according to the Department of Fish & Game. Another bear was spotted in Bradbury Monday.

A bear cub made itself at home in a Duarte garage Monday, feasting on garbage before he and his mother were chased back into the wilderness, according to the Department of Fish & Game.

The cub entered the garage through an open window at about 2:20 p.m. Monday, Fish & Game spokesman Andrew Huthan said.

"It was an open window in the garage and he just took the screen off the window," Huthan said. "The bear went into the open window into the trash can that was inside the garage."

The cub fled with his mother when a resident at the home on Greenback Drive returned home and saw the cub rummaging around, Huthan said.

"Mom and cub ran back into the open space and the open forest," he said.

The bear cub sighting was one of two separate bear incidents in the area Monday. An adult bear spotted roaming around a Bradbury neighborhood was chased back into the forest at about the same time Monday but returned at about 5:30 p.m.

Three Fish & Game wardens are on scene with tranquilizer guns should the bear become aggressive, Huthan said.

Is that what the helicopters are for? The bears?

2 armed robbers were chased by Royal Oaks park. Heard they caught 1 and the other eluded the sheriffs.

This is funny! My dad had a bear in his kitchen the other day- ripped the screen off a window and ate a bag of avocados and left. In Monrovia, the bears and their antics have been common place for so long that when you call the police they rarely show any interest in the matter at all. Good to see Duarte and Sierra Madre on the news though- I am sure it gives them a real kick in the pants- but I argue that Monrovia has had the bear scene down for a lot longer. LOL
