Glendale Bear returns to La Crescenta

The 400-pound black bear dubbed "Meatball" and known to some by the Twitter persona "Glen Bearian" was first spotted in April and returned to the Glendale area again in late June after being tranquilized and taken deep into the Angeles National Forest. The bear has been known to snack on meatballs, baklava and other trashed food items, and is thought to have once taken a dip in a backyard pool.
