The calmed black bear dives from the Pa tree and falls into the waiting tarp – NBC10 Philadelphia


A young black bear dove from a tree Tuesday and landed in a giant tarp held aloft by a group of animal, public safety and rescue officials who tranquilized the bear after it wandered into a Pennsylvania suburb.

De Bruin turned up around lunchtime in a residential area of ​​Camp Hill, outside the capital Harrisburg. Students and staff at a nearby high school were told to stay indoors and a stretch of road was closed, reported.

Fire and rescue officials used a ladder truck to get close to the bear and calm it down. The stunned animal fell about twenty feet into a large blue tarp held up by several wildlife officials, police and firefighters. The animal was again tranquilized and then moved to a bear trap placed on a trailer, the news channel reported.

The bear did not appear to be fully grown, and according to the report, wildlife officials said they would likely take it to state land elsewhere in central Pennsylvania. The Associated Press left a message with the Gaming Commission requesting details.
