Photo of the Day: Floating Bear

A 200-pound male that wildlife officials estimate is 3 to 5 years old — was tranquilized Thursday morning after a 2-1/2 hour romp around the dorms. The bear was roaming near the Bear Creek student apartments.

The bear scuttled 15 feet up a tree, and, a little after 10 a.m. officials shot two darts at the bear to tranquilize it. The decision was made because of the bear’s proximity to the dorms and U.S. 36, said Ryan Huff, a spokesman for the CU Police Department.

After a short wait, the bear fell out of the tree and onto pads that had been placed on the ground. The bear landed on its back.

“It was really a perfect landing,” Huff said.

Photographer Andy Duann of the student newspaper CU Independent caught an image of the bear in midair, seemingly hovering above the mat.

The bear has been tagged and was to be relocated to the foothills west of Boulder, said Jennifer Churchill, a spokeswoman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
