A large bear roamed in a residential neighborhood this week, spending two hours swimming in pools, eating garbage and trying to enter homes before going back into the forest, authorities said.

The incident occurred Wednesday in the Hastings Ranch area, prompting Pasadena officials to activate the reverse 911 system to alert residents. The bear was estimated to weigh 400 to 500 pounds and described as seeming at home in the neighborhood.

Officials said the bear caused no damage, but they said residents should stay indoors if it returns.
