Colorado wildlife officials used tranquilizer darts to relocate four bears that were found wandering in Boulder.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Kris Middledorf told the Daily Camera that a mother and her two cubs were seen climbing a tree in a residential yard Wednesday morning. The mother bear had climbed a tree when wildfire officers tranquilized her. She fell, and wildlife officers caught her.
One of her two cubs also was tranquilized. Both were put in a cage with their mother.
Later Wednesday, wildlife officers had to tranquilize another bear that was also in a residential area in Boulder.
Wildlife officials say a lot of bears have wandered into Front Range cities recently because of a shortage of food in their natural habitat.
