MONROVIA, Calif. (AP) - A big, old bear has been returned to the wild after drawing curious onlookers as it wandered a Los Angeles foothill suburb.

The bear sluggishly ambled along streets and into backyards Friday in Monrovia, which sits on the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains.

State wildlife authorities eventually tranquilized the bear and returned it to the forest.

The bear was described as an elderly female weighing about 400 pounds.

It's believed to be the same bear seen a day earlier in Monrovia, where it’s not uncommon for animals to wander out of the forest above the city.
