Here’s more from Newsweek:
A separate video obtained by KCBS-TV, the area’s CBS affiliate, showed the bear roaming around some other aisles, while officers chase it out of the front doors of the grocery store. Once the 120-pound bear was out of the store, it was then recorded in a construction area behind a nearby Walmart, where it hid under a trailer while officers waited for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services to arrive, KCBS reported.
The bear was reportedly tranquilized and moved to a safe area in the Angeles National Forest.
“It was decided that the best route for not only public safety but also for the bear itself was to chemically immobilize the animal, which we were successful in doing,” said Lt. Jake Coombs, an officer with the Department of Fish and Wildlife. “And it’s on its way back to the Angeles National Forest for release to a suitable habitat.”
