Bear captured after wandering into Michigan neighborhood
MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) — Wildlife workers have tranquilized and captured a black bear that was wandering around a mid-Michigan community.
The bear traveled through backyards Monday morning of a neighborhood in the city of Midland with a middle school nearby. WNEM-TV reports the bear was trapped inside the attached garage of a home, where it was shot with several tranquilizer darts. The 3- or 4-year-old male bear was then loaded into a bear trap so it could be taken to northern Michigan for release.
Dozens of people gathered to try to get a look at the bear.
