Treed bear tranquilized and relocated
SIERRA VISTA — State game and fish officials captured and relocated a yearling black bear that was treed Friday morning between Buffalo Soldier Trail and Seventh Street on the north end of the city.
The bear, weighing 75 to 100 pounds, was darted with a tranquilizer, then transported to the Gailuro Mountains and released unharmed. A tarp was used to break the fall of the bear from the tree.
State game officials continue to remind Sierra Vista area residents to be “bear aware” and secure garbage indoors or in a fully enclosed area until the day of pickup.
