They weigh less than two ounces apiece, but these little devils pack a wallop. And they're invading Granada Hills. But when someone tried to do something about them, there was an even greater outcry. The greatest suburban threat since crabgrass? Errant golf balls. And the solution creating even more problems? A 70-foot fence erected to stop them from raining down on back yards, cars, houses and swimming pools, leaving a trail of dented hoods and broken windows. "It was a war zone--we were afraid to sit in our own back yards," said Jioia Nelson, whose house overlooks Knollwood Golf Course off Balboa Boulevard north of Rinaldi Street.

A black bear spotted in a tree at a Granada Hills school Tuesday barreled from yard to yard, took a breather on the the front steps of a church, and scurried onto a golf course past onlookers as it evaded capture. The bear's odyssey began about 7 a.m. after it was spotted at the North Valley Charter Academy campus on Rinaldi Street. The bear climbed a tree at the rear of the campus, where it remained as students were escorted inside the school.  The chase began after a low-flying helicopter spooked the bear out of the tree.
