A bear which became a minor star in Los Angeles, with over 24,000 Twitter followers, was returned to the wild Sunday after being found asleep in a tree, officials said. The bear was nicknamed “Glen Bearian” after the Glendale neighborhood where he had become a regular visitor, with residents posting pictures taken on cellphones. Others called him Meatball. The Los Angeles Times wrote about him Friday, calling him a “social phenomenon” who had built up an affectionate following via his Twitter persona, created by a local resident and embraced by thousands of others.
