Bear roaming around Bucks County captured

FEASTERVILLE, Pa. - A bear that was seen roaming around Bucks County for several days has been captured.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission safely caught the bear Monday night in Feasterville.

The male bear, which officials believe is about 2 years old, had been sleeping in a tree and wouldn't come down when they shot him with a tranquilizer.

Officials first tried tranquilizing him Sunday, but it didn't work.

They plan to release him back into the wild.
