Banning police respond to call of a bear at a home

Taylor Martinez

Police in Banning responded over the weekend to a call they aren’t all that familiar with — a bear in a tree at a home.

The furry friend was located in the area North of Wilson Street between Dysart Drive and Dorothy Anna Drive.

Officers alerted residents to stay in their homes.

Fish & Game also helped to contain the bear who was escorted out of residential areas and returned to the hills north of the community.
