NEW YORK (AP) -- Police say two "Pokemon Go" players in Ohio have been arrested for criminal trespassing at the Toledo Zoo.
 
Police say the two went over a fence near the zoo's tiger enclosure in search of the smartphone game's cartoon monsters.
 
They were spotted on a zoo security camera and were walking through the zoo when they were caught early Thursday.
 
Meanwhile, authorities in Southern California say two men who were playing "Pokemon Go" fell off an ocean bluff. Encinitas firefighters say the men climbed through a fence yesterday afternoon. One plunged about 50 feet and the other fell 90 feet to the beach.
 
They were taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.
