Over the course of the last few months, Officers were alerted to the continual presence of two adult black bears that were frequenting neighborhoods near Hillgreen Place, Highland Oaks Drive and Canyon. The bears appeared to be "nesting" to the rear of one home and had become a dangerous nuisance to residents. Attempts were made using conventional means to remove the bears from the area. Through communication with the Department of Fish and Game, the decision was made to destroy the animals. On two separate occasions during the week of October 5th, Arcadia Officers were alerted to the presence of the bears and did destroy both animals. The carcass of each bear was removed by Fish and Game officials.
