    Three bears, a mother and her two cubs, wandered through a Monrovia neighborhood, looking for food in trash bins. Raw video from Wednesday June 5, 2013. (Published Wednesday, Jun 5, 2013)

    A mother bear and her two cubs knocked over trash bins Tuesday during their late-night search for food in the foothill communities of Monrovia and Arcadia

    The bears were caught on camera in the 2200 block of Highland Oaks Drive (map) in Arcadia, just south of Angeles National Forest and the Arcadia Wilderness Park, as they wandered across streets and yards. The bears left a trail of toppled trash bins in the neighborhood.

    Video showed the mother and one cub in a driveway before a second cub bounded from nearby bushes to join the family.
