Wildlife Officials Rescue Bear from Tree in Fort Collins
The bears are waking up and one in particular has found a tree he liked in a Fort Collins neighborhood.
In a tweet on May 5, 2020, Colorado Parks and Wildlife posted a video of wildlife officers rescuing a bear from a unspecified neighborhood tree in Fort Collins. The bear had to be tranquilized before he could be taken down from the tree. In the video you can see the bear, clearly sedated, as a wildlife officer tries to free him.
For weeks now, bear sightings have been increasing across the front range. Just yesterday (May 5) we reported on a black bear collapsing a couple's tent while they were out camping. A few weeks ago, a bear was seen near a home in Castle Rock.
