Trying to keep a bear off Highway 50, a South Lake Tahoe Police officer drives on the bike path and honks her horn, chasing the animal back into the Al Tahoe neighborhood late Wednesday afternoon.

The bear attracted the attention of motorists and gawkers with cameras as it wandered through the area, before authorities chased the bear out to a meadow.

The BEAR League was also notified about the bear.
