Casual Bears and People

My wife was gardening out by the street a little while ago, and a woman
walked by on the sidewalk and asked, "Is the bear still there?"

"What bear?" my wife asked.

The woman looked up in the tree overhead and said, "Oh yeah, she's still

My wife looked up and found she had been gardening under a 300 pound
bear and her two cubs. And I came out and snapped this picture.

That night momma and the cubs left, but I must say, people (and bears)
in Monrovia are getting mighty casual.
