That’s a Bear on a Roof in MHC Up There, Causing a Scare

May 14th, 2018


On the dramatic turned lighter side,  the Santa Clarita Valley (SCV) Sheriff’s Station Twitter feed reported a bear on the roof a shed in a manufactured home community, and snapped the photo above.


Deputies responded out to a mobile home park [*] in Gorman [California] tonight re: a bear on the roof. The bear reportedly tore through a shed looking for food. CA Fish and Wildlife responded. No injuries reported,” per SCV’s Twitter feed.

The following question was sent to SCV via Twitter, “Was the bear tranquilized and transported or shot to death? You can’t leave us hanging Deputy!!”

The bear is doing good. Fish and Wildlife responded and the bear escaped to a tree. They did not transport him, lots of open space for him to get back into the wild,” came the reply tweet.

First responders were praised for their handling of the incident.

SCV added, “Scary! Yet poor animal… I’m sure he wanted to hurt no one… he was just wanting some fish and chips.”

Community owners and managers know that operating a land-lease for manufactured homes can be a lot like being a mayor of a town.  Sooner or later, you see it all. ## (News, analysis, and commentary.)
