A momma bear and her cubs were climbing trees, nibbling at fruit and exploring a Monrovia nieghborhood Friday.

Homeowner Kate Clark said the bear, who she nicknamed "Bernadine," and her two cubs have been in the area for weeks, and she has gotten used to their peaceful presence.

"She's a good mom. She lives in this area," Clark said. "We see her a lot."

Unfortunately, not everyone is happy with the wandering family. Clark said her cat has been in a bad mood because he can't go outside when the bears are around.
