LUCERNE VALLEY • For many Lucerne Valley residents, the sight of a large, reddish-colored dog slowly ambling through the town was a source of comfort.

He was always there.

But sometime during the night of Saturday, Oct. 25, the pooch known as “Bear” or “Chow Chow” died, apparently struck by a vehicle on the highway in front of the library.

“I got a phone call Sunday morning saying he was hit,” says Becky Lorimor, who has cared for the dog for the past three or four years.

LUCERNE VALLEY • A dead cow was found on a dirt segment of Agate Road near Crystal Creek Road earlier this week.

The animal, which apparently was illegally dumped at the location, was discovered by a nearby resident who said the dumping occurred between 5 and 9 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 30. Another resident called the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, which referred the resident to the county’s animal control department.
