I can imagine the state of mind of the humans around her. Pure joy at seeing a wonderful wild beast so close, mixed with pure terror. Thankfully the authorities didn't tranquilize her, just waited for her to climb down once she was refreshed. Which she obligingly did, and then she trotted off into the wilderness. Came dangerously close to the 210 freeway but thankfully didn't actually make it. The best part is, this bear is a repeat offender- she had been previously tagged just two weeks ago making merry in someone else's backyard. Maybe they should just buy her a bathing suit now. It's summer already.
Reminds me of myself when I was a tot. Wandering, snoozing, snooping, coming close to dangerous roads, etc. I weighed quite a bit less than 200 lbs. though, and I hope they never thought of tranquilizing me, heheh.
Seriously though, I love wild animal sighting stories when they end well. My all-time favorite one has to be the baby seal somewhere in New Zealand who was found napping (upstairs!) on someone's sofa.
