At about 5:30 a.m., a man checking on a barking dog came face to face with what appeared to be a 120 pound black bear. The bear hopped a fence and went on his way.
Arroyo Grande Police said the bear was most likely searching for water in a nearby creek. Officials trailed the bear through at least five backyards before the bear found his way to the creek.
