Bear Sighting in Simi Valley

On Sunday, September 04, 2022, at approximately 1005 hours, Simi Valley Police Department received a call from a resident regarding a black bear which had entered their kitchen through an open back door. When officers arrived, the bear was still in the kitchen. A short time later, the bear exited the residence through the same back door and climbed a backyard tree.

The Simi Valley Police Department is aware of the bear in the area of Cochran St and Mt. Sinai Dr and has been in contact with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife regarding the incident.

We would like to remind everyone to please be aware of your surroundings and do not attempt to approach the bear or block its path.
