Neighbors reported spotting a black bear in the Chevy Chase Canyon neighborhood of Glendale recently.
The black bear is described as 3 to 4 feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds, with a fondness for hummingbird sugar water and a taste for honey.
This dietary insight is based on its snacking habits during multiple neighborhood visits over the past year.
The latest sighting is reminiscent of the bear dubbed "Meatball," who was moved to an animal sanctuary in San Diego County after twice being relocated deep within Angeles National Forest last year following regular forays into Glendale.
"I was kind of surprised another bear is back,” said resident Suzanne Whitman, whose bird feeder was knocked down at about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday at her home on Chevy Chase Drive. The bear, she said, visited her home twice last year.
