TAHOE CITY, CA (WSYX/WTTE) -- A mother bear and her two cubs weren't about to stick around for questioning from authorities after they were spotted at night in a California shopping plaza.

In the video posted by the Placer County Sheriff's Office, you see the mother bear look at the cruiser, gather her young ones, and take off.

The deputy on patrol said it looked like one of the cubs was trying to get into a trash can.
