3) If you didn't read the weekly crime blotter to the end, you may have missed this bear sighting, which happened last week. From the blotter: "Just after 3:20 p.m., an officer responded to the area of Elkins Avenue and Canyon Road in reference to a bear sighting. The officer located the bear in the driveway of a residence and fired a less lethal round to divert him back into the wilderness. After being struck, the animal fled the location out of sight."
4) A commenter on the update about a stranger found dead in a backyard pool last week in Arcadia notes that a dog who was also found in the backyard is at the Pasadena Humane Society and available for adoption (Editor's note: After following up with PHS, it turns out that a relative of the deceased picked up the dog and took him home - he is not at PHS or up for adoption).
