Bear Strolls Down Sidewalk in Los Angeles Suburb

A black bear was spotted going for a walk in the Los Angeles suburb of Monrovia, video posted to Facebook on May 31 shows.

Irena Mlynar, who filmed this footage, said she was wondering why drivers ahead of her were slowing down – that is, until she spotted a brown bear sauntering along the sidewalk to her left.

Mlynar said people in the area told her they had seen the bear before, sometimes with cubs.

According to the City of Monrovia, bears often venture into the area as the weather warms up “after emerging from their winter dens in search of food.” Credit: Irena Mlynar via Storyful
