ROSEVILLE, CA - Some Roseville homeowners had quite the scare Sunday morning when a bear paid visits to several backyards in a quiet subdivision.
Police responded to the first sighting around 7:30 am at a home near Maidu Park, but they soon began hearing from more neighbors as the bear made its way through the community.
After a brief appearance at a home near the intersection of Lund Avenue and Old Auburn Road, the bear disappeared until Satoko Williams saw the animal outside her back window a few blocks north on Hidden View Lane.
"Something, brown stuff was crawling. I said, 'what?' The next minute I know, that was bear," Williams said.
Her husband got a closer look and quickly called 911.
"I couldn't believe it. I really couldn't ... a bear? No, we don't get bears around here," Chuck Williams said.
As police responded, neighbors began getting increasingly concerned.
