Black bear seen wandering through canyon neighborhoods

Glendale residents spotted a 300-pound black bear roaming their canyon neighborhoods on Friday, police said.

The bear hasn’t been spotted since Friday, Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said.

A resident on the 1600 block of Sheridan Road saw the bear at 10:29 p.m. near her home's front porch, police said. Shortly after, another neighbor reported seeing the bear in the 1700 block of Golf Club Drive, which is roughly a block away from the Chevy Chase Country Club.

As officers arrived at the neighborhood, they spotted the bear running east on Golf Club Drive from Sheridan. They followed the bear, which jumped over a wall on the same block and has not been seen again.

In September, Glendale residents spotted a bear, which they also said was 300 pounds, in the driveway of a home in the 3600 block of East Chevy Chase Drive. The neighborhood is less than a mile from the golf course.

Last week in Granada Hills, authorities with state Department of Fish and Wildlife tranquilized a black bear, which had hidden in a tree, then dashed through home yards and a golf course.
