The dispatcher didn't even get a chance to finish her first sentence. “9-1-1, what is your emer…” “Oh my God! A bear is in my house!” the woman on the other end of the line yells in a panic. “Inside the house?” “INSIDE the house!” “Is everybody out of the house?” “No! Just me, I'm in the house!” For about eight minutes Wednesday, a Duarte woman hid in fear, locked in her bathroom, while a 1-year-old bear scrounged through her kitchen.

A bear that spent more than an hour Wednesday morning roaming through a Sun Valley neighborhood was tranquilized and captured and will be returned to the forest, authorities said. The approximately 15-month-old bear scaled walls, climbed fences and slipped in and out of horse corrals in Sun Valley, south of the 210 Freeway, for about 1½ hours beginning about 6 a.m. About half a dozen Los Angeles police officers and a state game warden eventually cornered the bear and tranquilized it. The bear will be released in the Angeles National Forest, said Andrew Hughan, a spokesman for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Labor gambled and lost. Wendy Greuel drove away much of her own base. And it's done. After two years of campaigning and more than $30 million of spinning, the next mayor of Los Angeles will be Eric Garcetti, who doesn't exactly have what you'd call a mandate. Though he won by several percentage points despite predictions of a tighter race, it looks like about four out of five registered voters blew off this election. Live video analysis: Wednesday, noon to 2 p.m. The question is whether Garcetti won the election or Greuel lost it, despite several million more dollars being spent on her behalf by independent expenditure campaigns, and you could argue it either way. But as a San Fernando Valley resident, Greuel did herself no favors by identifying herself with the most hated city agency, the L.A. Department of Water and Power.

The aroma of trash and leftover people food proved too alluring Wednesday for a bear in Sun Valley, where police and wildlife officials tracked the animal through a residential neighborhood. “The smells are what bring them there,” Andrew Hughan, spokesman for the California Department Fish and Wildlife told KTLA-TV during an interview. “It's all about the food.” The bear appeared to be about 15 months old and had a tag on its ear, meaning it has been trapped before, Hughan said.

Neighborhood fences and police cars proved no match for a bear in Sun Valley, where it hopped into backyards and roamed into horse corrals Wednesday morning. “We still don't have eyes on it,” said Los Angeles police Sgt. Thomas Wunsch of the Foothill station. “Officers are going to hopefully tranquilize it.” Police started getting calls from residents about 6:10 a.m. about the bear, which TV news showed having free rein through the Sun Valley community. It didn't appear to be fully grown and was seen climbing over fences into backyards, spooking horses in residents' corrals and avoiding police cars searching for it on the street.

A 28-year-old Van Nuys man has been charged in the kidnapping and death of a Glendale man who was run over with a vehicle and shot to death in Sun Valley, authorities said this week. Hachik Maskovian faces four felony murder-related charges in the death of 33-year-old Joshua West, including that the incident was premeditated and that he was kidnapped during the April 24 incident, according to a Los Angeles County Superior Court criminal complaint. West died of multiple gunshot wounds but was also cut and suffered blunt-force trauma, said Los Angeles County coroner's spokesman Ed Winter.
