Baklava-loving bear may be back in Glendale ahead of trash day

A baklava-loving bear may have returned Thursday night to Chevy Chase Canyon to have a feast before trash day, authorities said. 

Residents reported seeing a black bear about 9:15 p.m. in the 3100 block of Linda Vista Road -- a few blocks from where a 300-pound bear was spotted in May digging through trash and snacking on chicken, rice and baklava. That bear reappeared two weeks ago, also on a Thursday -- the night before the trash is collected in the hillside community.

Police were still trying to locate the ursine, Glendale Police Sgt. Craig Tweedy said. The California Department of Fish and Game has been notified, but unless the bear poses a danger, not much will be done.

"We will try to get it back in the hills," Tweedy said.
