Bear captured in Montgomery Co

ABINGTON TWP., Pa. - A bear that's been wandering in Montgomery County for several days has been captured.

Game officials found the bear in a tree in Abington Township Wednesday.

The 125-pound bear was tranquilized with a dart gun, fell asleep, then fell from the tree.

Crews got the one-and-a-half year old bear tagged and are taking him to northeastern Pennsylvania to be released into the wild.
