LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. (AP) - A bear took advantage of the suburban amenities for most of the day in the foothills northeast of Los Angeles before wandering back into the wilderness.

The bear was spotted wandering among homes in La Canada Flintridge on Wednesday morning, and at one point, the critter took a dip in a backyard pool.

Los Angeles station KNBC-TV reports that the bear has a tag, indicating it’s been caught and released previously.

Early in the evening, as authorities watched it closely, it climbed down from a tree and returned to the wild.
