Seems Glendale's biggest (literally) foodie -- the 400-pound bear dubbed "Meatball" -- is getting just as much attention these days for his preferred diet of fast food and other treats as he his for his herculean back-and-forth journeys from Angeles National Forest to Glendale.
He was lured into a trap by a state game warden Wednesday morning with the irresistible combination of a McDonald's Happy Meal, French fries, honey and bacon. And since being taken to a temporary refuge in San Diego County, has turned his nose up at just about everything -- including marshmallows! -- his new handlers have been trying to feed him.
Today, they caved and ordered him takeout meatballs from a local Italian joint.
So perhaps it was only a matter of time before the connoisseurs over at Los Angeles Magazine weighed in on this unlikely L.A.-area food story.
So, what would it take to lure a Los Angeles Magazine editor into a bear trap? Let's just say the list includes everything from Mozza butterscotch budino and beef bourguignon from Comme Ça, to more standard fare, like the garlic sauce from Zankou Chicken and "popcorn, mac n' cheese, ramen."
The complete list of responses is here.
