A mother bear and her two cubs were seen walking around a residential neighborhood in Duarte Sunday morning for more than five hours.

The bears likely came out of the Angeles National Forest around 7 a.m., officials said.

Authorities are not supposed to use a tranquilizer on a mother bear when she is with her cubs, so the bears were monitored until they made there way back into the wild, an official at the scene said.
