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.
