Local animal control, police and state Fish and Game officials are ramping up efforts to track a California black bear that has been rummaging through residential trash cans in North Glendale.
The bear recently gained notice after entering a home garage early Wednesday on the 3700 block of Beechglen Drive and rummaged through a refrigerator in search for food. The bear returned later that evening and was caught foraging by a television news crew.
“It’s an ongoing saga of us living with bears,” said North Glendale Community Lead Officer Matt Zakarian.
Police and animal control officers posted fliers with information on the bear in the Beechglen Drive neighborhood, which sits along the Verdugo Mountains just south of the Foothill (210) Freeway. Police also planned to go door-to-door to discuss the ongoing bear sightings.
