A mama bear and her cub were spotted roaming around a neighborhood on the border of Sierra Madre and Arcadia Thursday morning.

The bears was spotted scurrying up a tree at Stone House Road and Grandview Avenue just before 8 a.m. The sighting drew a crowd of about two dozen eyewitnesses.

At one point, the mother bear came out of the tree and paced back and forth. Police were nearby keeping a close eye on the bears.

The mama bear would often stay underneath the tree to protect her cub. Police eventually fired bean bag rounds in the direction of the bears, causing them to leave the tree and head back into the foothills.
