A 300-pound black bear wandered down suburban streets, played on a high school football field and crossed the freeway three times before he was caught and tranquilized on Sunday.


A three-year-old black bear that had been wandering through La Crescenta on Sunday morning has been tranquilized and is being transported back to the Angeles National Forest, officials said.
The bear was first spotted on Henrietta Ave. in La Crescenta at about 7:20 a.m. Sunday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lt. Angela Shepherd said.
It wandered on to the Crescenta Valley High School football field, crossed the 210 freeway three times and then went south into the community of Montrose, where officials of the California Department of Fish and Game caught up with the animal and tranquilized it, Shepherd said.
The bear caused no injuries or property damage, she said. Like other bears during this hot, dry summer, it probably came out of the forest to look for food, Shepherd said.
Officials have not yet said whether the bear is male or female. It will be tagged so it will be recognizeable if it comes back down from the forest again.
Another bear, dubbed "Meatball" by some and "Glenbearian" by others, has been taken to an animal sanctuary because it repeatedly came down into suburban neighborhoods.

I'm surprised some idiot didn't run up to him and attempt to give him a bear hug.

no they are not :p but I meant the dangerous ones.... cobras.... rattle snakes.... Large boas and pythons.... erm....vipers yes there is a pattern here... and a really nasty ostrich one time.... he was just plain mean.... the big side of animals (no all so dangerous) :p highland cows... llamas... middle whites ( <-- big BIG BIG pigs ) horses etc :p

either way nooo not all wild animals are dangerous just ones that can kill you before you can blink and are likely to on purpose... ducks are wild and are not dangerous unless they hit the windshield and smudge
