Bakersfield Bear Crashes Middle School Graduation
He is smarter than your average bear and obviously trying to upstage the other attention-seeking black bears in recent weeks like the Monrovia Bear who took a dip in the family swimming pool and the famous Glen Bearian who has his own Twitter account.
The Bakersfield bear disrupted a middle school graduation this morning by climbing over a fence and onto an adjacent elementary school playground, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Officials said that the 200-pound bear went through the parking lot of Ramon Garza Elementary School and past the administrators office. The principal spotted it and put the school on lockdown.
No one was injured and the bear was secured by animal control.
