A bear crawled out from underneath a house in Kings Beach after being disturbed by visitors.
Placer County Sheriff's deputies said in a Facebook post that the bear was chased around and cornered by visitors who were trying to take a picture with it.
Authorities want to remind people that bears are wild animals and cornering them can be dangerous. Pictures and videos can be taken, but only from a distance.
