College party gets furry
BETHLEHEM, Pa. - A college party got a little wilder than expected when a black bear showed up.
Authorities say the bear crashed the party early Saturday near the campus of Lehigh University, about 50 miles north of Philadelphia.
Emergency officials received a flood of 911 calls after the 300- to 400-pound black bear was seen in south Bethlehem.
Police chief Mark DiLuzio says the bear "lumbered close to the party and scared the living daylights out of people."
Lehigh University said on its website that the bear was captured, tranquilized and removed from the area a couple hours later.
DiLuzio said it was the same bear seen Friday near the university's athletic facilities.
Pennsylvania Game Commission district officer Tyler Krieder says the bear came from New Jersey and probably swam across the Delaware River.
