Fish and Game officials tranquilized the bear after it climbed a tree, but they said later that its injuries called for euthanasia, KTLA says. The 210 Freeway was closed briefly during the bear's capture Sunday afternoon.

Also this weekend, a young bear entered a home in Monrovia and raided the refrigerator, according to the resident.
