Tumbling bear

Like Jarhead (reported in the 26 August blog), the young black bear in the photo wandered into human neighbourhood in the US and was caught and then rescued.

This incident happened in downtown Missoula, Montana. The 70-pound bear cub confronted a driver at a street intersection. He then climbed up a maple tree, found a resting spot about 30 feet off the ground and lay on the branch swinging his paws in the air.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officers spread a net and waited catch the bear before shooting him with a tranquilizer gun. After about five minutes, the bear tumbled into the net.
After doing some tests to check the bear's health, the FWP officials relocated the bear outside the city.
