There’s nothing like bears coming down from the foothills to bring out the wildlife paparazzi in people.

A mother bear and her cub drew a crowd in an Arcadia neighborhood Thursday morning as they sat in a tree and ate a snack in the branches.

The Sierra Madre Police Department received a call about 7:45 a.m. and found the two bears in a tree in a front yard at the intersection of Stonehouse Road and Grandview Avenue, said Sgt. Ruben Enriquez of the Sierra Madre Police Department.
