Deputies warn La Crescenta residents of reported bear sightings

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies alerted residents in La Crescenta this evening to reports of a large black bear roaming through an apartment complex.

Several callers reported seeing a bear in the complex in the 4300 block of Ocean View Boulevard.

Deputies searched the area but were unable to find the animal, according to the Sheriff's Department.

The department said it used the reverse 911 system to warn residents of the sightings.

As soon as they find that bear Fish and Game will come and KILL it. That is what they do best in California. In Santa Barbara that is what they do and keep doing all in the name of protecting the wild life. RUN BEAR RUN!!!!! Poor thing just wants to EAT!!!

I can only hope that deputies and other "authorities" don't get crazy like they do when it comes to mountain lions, and shoot the bear. We are so stupid when it comes to living with nature. We want it to adapt to human rules, instead of realizing that we can do things to adapt ourselves to the larger scope of being part of nature...
