After taking taking a summer dip in a backyard pool in Granada Hills Tuesday, a bear appears to have been shot with a tranquilizer dart, but continued to roam through a park, officials said.
Police were warning residents in the neighborhood to stay indoors.
The bear was reported along the 1500 block of Timber Ridge Drive. Then the bear wandered through the neighborhood, roaming across front yards near the 13000 block of Whistler Avenue.
The bear relaxed in the cool water for a few minutes, finding relief from the humidity and 90-degree heat. It eventually climbed out of the pool, hopped a block wall and continued exploring the San Fernando Valley neighborhood.
