Sleeping bear rescued
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO- The tranquilizer worked perfectly and a black bear fell asleep in a tree and had to be hoisted down, which turned into a bigger-than-average rescue for firefighters in Colorado Springs. The bear climbed a tree when it was spotted by wildlife officers and it was tranquilized twice. The first dart just made the bear climb higher into a tall pine tree. When it was hit by a second tranquilizer dart, it fell asleep. It weighed between 150 and 200 pounds, so firefighters used a ladder truck and put a harness around it to lower it down. Usually bears fall asleep with the first dart and fall and are caught with a tarp.
