LOS ANGELES -- A bear kept officials and media busy Wednesday when it wandered through a neighborhood in the Los Angeles area. For a while, the bear enjoyed a dip in a backyard pool and an afternoon nap in a tree.

KTLA even got video of the bear's meanderings from their Sky5 helicopter.

State wildlife wardens tried to chase the bear back into the hills above the La Canada area, but for the most part the bear was having none of it.

The 250-pound bear was believed to be three years old and is believed to be the same bear that was spotted in Pasadena over Memorial Day Weekend.
