Wandering bear safely captured in New Jersey town
MOORESTOWN, N.J. (KGO) -- A black bear that's been seen hanging around Moorestown, New Jersey since Memorial Day was finally caught by authorities Thursday morning.
Crews darted the bear while he was up on a tree in a condo complex.
Still, he kept police and onlookers at bay for nearly four hours before he finally fell to the ground.
But don't worry, he's okay. He landed in a safety net.
The 350 pound animal, believed to be about 3-years-old, will be released back into the wild.
He's had quite an adventure. On Tuesday he was spotted taking a dip in a local lake.
