CHICO, Calif. - New video surveillance shows a black bear running from police officers and also gauging the door of a dental office in Chico.

The incident occurred around 5 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9, at Gary Walker's Dental Office off of Forest Avenue. 

When employees arrived at the office on Monday morning, they saw large scratch marks and mud on the front door of the office.

At first, they thought that the scratches could have been from a dog, but decided to check the surveillance video after seeing the size of the wide-gauge marks, according to Gary's wife, Cathy Walker. 

The door will have to be repaired, but they do not have an estimate of the cost at this time, she said. 

Police also received other reports of a black bear on Sept. 9 around the same time near a Lowe's Home Improvement on Forrest Avenue.

Stronger winds and low humidity over dry fuels will result in very high fire danger across northern California Wednesday and Thursday. We'll be very hot Wednesday, but a welcome drop in high temperatures is ahead for Thursday. Smoke will continue to bring big impacts to our air quality over the next several days, and temperatures will heat back up from Friday into Saturday.
