Brazen Bear Roams Through California Neighborhood, Prompting School Lockdown

A brazen bear seen roaming through a residential neighborhood in San Dimas, California, on October 27 was “safely taken back into its natural habitat”, according to authorities.

Footage released by the San Dimas sheriff’s department shows the bear walking in front of a garage.

In a statement accompanying the video, the sheriff’s department said the bear was seen on campus at Shull Elementary School, which prompted an immediate lockdown of the school.
