Meatball the Bear Gets Busted, Again.
Some animals just don't learn their lesson. A black bear in California that has been dubbed "Meatball" for breaking into someone's outdoor fridge to feast on frozen Costo meatballs is at it again.
When Meatball made his first foray into suburbia back in March wildlife officials were eventually able to trap and relocate him 100 miles away to the Angeles National Forest. True to his wandering bear nature, however, Meatball recently made his way back into town, most likely in search of another easy and tasty meal.
He was easily identified by the tag in his ear that he recieved when he was first relocated. Read the full story here.

This seems to be the same bear that I posted about on Huffington Post a few months ago that startled a man who was texting and obliviously almost walked right into the animal.
