The state Game Commission and some firefighters rounded up a bear that caused a stir when it strolled through an eastern Pennsylvania city.
The Nazareth Fire Department posted several pictures on its Facebook page after someone reported the 215-pound female bear Sunday afternoon.
By the time firefighters arrived, the bear had climbed a tree.
State game officers planned to tranquilize the bear, but needed the firefighters to catch the animal in a tarp as it fell.
Nazareth Fire Department says that in about 10 minutes the bear fell onto the tarp.

The (Easton) Express-Times says the bear tried to run away once it fell from the tree, but she laid down and passed out from the tranquilizer dart.
