Bear Falls from Tree in Washington After Being Tranquilized [VIDEO]

This bear was tranquilized in a tree and bound to relocation. Watch as officials catch him when he falls. 

Sometimes bears wander too close to humans and can pose danger to urban areas. A normal response to danger, for most bears, is to run up a tree.

This is the case here when a bear got a little too close to humans, was spooked, and ran up a tree. It then became a problem for the local law enforcement as they tried to remove the threat before things escalated.

In this report from KYXLY out of Washington state, see this bear fall from a tree after being tranquilized for its, and everyone else’s, safety.

It looks like that bear might be a little worse for wear when he wakes up after hitting that branch, but hopefully he will stay away from populated areas from now on.
