Large Bear Treed On Rose Street

LAPD managed to tree this 200 plus lb. black bear at dusk Friday on the Rose Street side of the Oppenheimer Condos. LAPD called New Mexico Fish and Game. It appears they never arrived so the bear apparently climbed down from his perch some 40 feet in the tree and went on his way. Sgt. Andrew Goldie said at the scene that this bear has been all over town ransacking bird feeders and everything else he could eat at Timber Ridge townhouses, Smith’s Marketplace, Pajarito Brew Pub and private residences. He is not afraid of people and LAPD advises to not approach this bear. Photo by Jim O’Donnell
