Video: Lost Bear Falls From Tree In US
A 200lb black bear has been taken back to the mountains after it roamed onto a US university campus and climbed up a tree.
The animal became a minor celebrity after making his surprise appearance at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
He was filmed and photographed by onlookers as wildlife officers shot it with a tranquilizer gun.
It fell safely from a 15ft-high perch on to safety mats, landing on its back.
State wildlife offical Jennifer Churchill said on Friday that the bear was tagged, caged and taken to a remote area in the nearby Rocky Mountains.
