Theory of the Bear Leisure Class
Now where's that cocktail waitress?
LOS ANGELES — A 140-pound bear wandered into a suburban neighborhood and took a dip in a swimming pool before being tranquilized and returned to the wild.
The female bear ambled into the San Fernando Valley's Porter Ranch area shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday, bumping into doors and windows before taking a few splashes in a backyard pool, fire spokesman Brian Humphrey said.
Homeowner Maryam Salahael pulled her children out of the pool when the bear showed up, and she called 911.
