Watch Out For Falling Bear

A black bear that climbed up a tree at the University of Colorado campus at Boulder has been returned to the wild after an extraordinary rescue operation.

The huge 200lb beast had been lolloping around a University of Colorado campus at Boulder for the best part of a day before climbing the tree. As students crowded round to watch, wildlife officers tranquilized the bear with two darts. A few minutes later it was falling 15-feet from the tree and landed softly and safely on a large crash mat which looks kind of like a giant mattress. Pretty cool video on this if you want to YouTube it. The bear was later tagged and released in the mountains west of Boulder.
