February 18, 2013 |  6:26 am

Residents in Monrovia were on edge Monday after two bears and a large mountain lion were spotted in the area.

The two large brown bears seen roaming a neighborhood near Norumbega Road may have been a mother and her cub, KTLA-TV reported. Several large garbage cans were knocked over where the animals were likely looking for food.

A short time later, a large mountain lion was spotted on Ridgeside Drive.

No one was hurt, and the animals quickly returned to the wilderness.
