Black bear wanders into Green Bay neighborhood


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Wildlife officials say a 150-pound black bear is back in a more secluded part of Wisconsin after wandering into a popular Green Bay neighborhood.

   Conservation Warden Andy Lundin tells WBAY-TV  he got a call early Saturday morning that a young bear had climbed a tree in a residential area.

   Lundin guesses that the bear walked down by the river and eventually ended up in the neighborhood on the west side of the city. They tranquilized the animal and it fell out of the tree, about a 6- to 8-foot drop.

   Officials let the bear free in northern Oconto County a few hours later.
