It might be time for us to simply co-exist with our friend, the Angeleno Forest bear. After two fuzzy brown forest-dwellers were spotted in Duarte and Bradbury earlier this week, another was seen wandering around Pasadena this morning.

CBS News reports that a worker at the Rose Bowl called authorities at about 10:30 a.m. today to say that he saw the animal walking near the 400 block of Patrician Way. Once officials got to the scene, though, the bear was gone.

Fish and Game officials are suggesting that those of us who don't want bears in our backyards be careful to keep errant trash and food to a minimum.
