Bear cub in Bradbury draws sheriff's deputies to watch yards

Yet another bear has been spotted in Bradbury. Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say deputies are on scene waiting for the cub to make its next move.

Sgt. Tony Haynes said a call came in about 10 a.m. of a bear spotted on the 2500 block of Gardi Street. Since then, the cub has been “kind of running from yard to yard.”

The cub is now in a different backyard, and Department of Fish and Game spokesman Andrew Hughan said a wildlife specialist is on the way.

Authorities are advising residents to stay inside and avoid any bear they might see roaming. Haynes said the bear is in the same general area as an adult bear spotted in Bradbury Monday afternoon. No mother or father bear has been spotted near this cub.
