An adventurous black bear was spotted on the run in a residential neighborhood in Slymar, California, near Los Angeles, late on yesterday evening.

The bear scrambled through backyards and scaled fences as it tried to avoid being captured by wildlife officials and Los Angeles police.

After a hour-long chase, the bear was finally sedated and taken away in the back of a pickup truck. Officials told local media that no residents were harmed.
