Glendale Black Bear Can't Kick the Dumpster-Diving Habit
A black bear wandered down from the forest for a late-night snack in Glendale last night.
However, it's not clear if this is the same bear who first came down the hill last week to feast on meatballs or get his daily dose of vitamin C from an orange tree in La Crescenta, according to KTLA.
We wanted this bear to run back to the forest and never to return, because the California Department of Fish and Game says it will use deadly force against the bear if it needs to. But it looks like this black bear is having trouble kicking the dumpster-diving habit. Experts believe that the bear—or bears—continues to roam suburbia since the quality of food up in the forest just hasn't been the same ever since the 2009 Station Fire.
If you see the bear, call the Glendale Police Department at (818) 550-6569.
