Bear on a tree - level 3

A bear weighing nearly 300 pounds has been discovered in a tree in Florida.

Officials from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation said the male black bear climbed into the tree overnight and was found in a homeowner's backyard.

A tranquillizer dart was used to subdue the bear, causing him to fall from a high tree branch into a tub, that was held above ground by a group of wildlife officials. The animal was then carried away to be relocated to the Ocala National Forest.

Interesting words: 300 pounds (136 kilograms), tranquillizer (drug which makes you sleep), dart (shart object that is shot), subdue (bring under control), tub (large container used for washing).
