Some bruin is where he ain't ought to be: several newsgroups have reported sighting a bear at Mendocino and Altadena Drive, last seen heading in the general direction of Eaton Canyon, about 9 PM tonight, so be careful out there!

Just thought you would like our story from tonight. I grilled some fish and we were eating on the back patio when my daughter spotted a large bear about 20 feet from our table snooping around. It was dark and I only caught a glimpse of it while scooting into the house. I called the sheriff and they came to check it out. She was gone but they said they had a report earlier of the same bear (presumably) on the 2000 block of Braeburn, just south of us. I guess she has two cubs though we didn't see that.
Our dog was in the backyard but managed to stay away from the bear and everyone is alright.
