Bears Swim, Rummage Through Garbage While Roaming LA Suburb

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Three black bears treated a suburban California neighborhood like a resort, taking a dip in a backyard pool and helping themselves to a dumpster buffet.

The trio — two cubs and their mother — wandered out of the San Gabriel mountains and into the foothill city of Pasadena on Thursday afternoon.

They ventured through several backyards and jumped into at least two pools before being chased out of the area by a brave dog.

State Fish and Wildlife spokesman Andrew Hughan tells the Los Angeles Times the mother bear appeared to be about 300 pounds. He said the cubs looked healthy and were likely less than a year old.
