CUYAMA, Calif. – Some Cuyama Valley residents woke up to a bear-y strange surprise on Wednesday morning when they found a bear relaxing in their laundry room.
A bear had entered the laundry room of a home on the 2400 block of Santa Barbara Canyon Road in the Cuyama Valley just after 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

County Fire crews assisted the bear outside, where it immediately climbed a tree
