PASADENA, Calif. (NBC/KNBC) - Rush hour can be a bear, but out in California a bear brought rush hour to a standstill.
Cars stopped on the 210 freeway as searchers looked for a wandering bear that had made its way too close to the roadway before heading back down the hill.
The big bruin eventually scaled a fence, ran across a freeway underpass, and barreled across a golf course.
California Department of Fish and Wildlife officials are monitoring the bear's movement to make sure it and the public remain safe.
