One surprised resident was in the pool area when the bear jumped that fence.
"I was in the Jacuzzi just relaxing when I saw the bear hop over, took off, hop over the other side of the pool, and went up the tree," said resident Travis Byrd.
Officials from the /*California Department of Fish and Game*/ tried to tranquilize the bear while it was in the tree, but it came back down and ran a few more blocks to a nearby park.
Fish and Game officers were able to tranquilize the cub at the park and planned to release it on Mt. Baldy Thursday morning.
