DUARTE, Calif. (AP) - Officials say a woman in a Los Angeles suburb found a bear cub sitting on her kitchen counter.
A Los Angeles county sheriff's statement says the department received a 911 call Wednesday from the woman, who said the bear had climbed through her window and she had locked herself in an upstairs bathroom.
On a recording of the call, the woman can be heard shouting "Oh my God, a bear is in my house!"
Deputies and an animal control officer arrived at the home near the San Gabriel mountains in Duarte and found the cub sitting on the counter eating.
They left the door open and made noises to scare the bear, who eventually ran out and into surrounding forest area. The bear was estimated to be a year old.
