There's A New Glendale Bear
After Fish and Game officials tagged and removed one Glendale-frequenting 500-pound black bear last month, another has made his or her way to the area this week, reports KTLA.
The new Glendale bear was spotted in the 2500 block of Chevy Chase Drive on Monday and Tuesday nights. And while the first Glendale Bear -- dubbed "Glen Bearian" by supporters -- preferred to snack on meatballs and oranges, this new bear was spotted enjoying some leftover chicken, rice and baklava.
Officials say that it's possible that this is the same bear, since once they acquire a taste for human food, they tend to come back to the area. (And when they've discovered such a robust buffet, it's kind of hard to blame them.)
The LA Times reports that police showed up in Tuesday night and tried to get the bear to leave, but he summarily ignored them until he felt like going on his own, which he eventually did.
Like with his predecessor (if this is indeed a different bear), officials won't take action unless he poses an immediate threat.
