WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - A bear on the run in a busy part of Lehigh County Thursday finally came to a rest, at a place of rest.

The bear was first seen in south Allentown late Thursday morning and went on quite the journey before ending up in a tree at the Garden of Peace Cemetery on Fullerton Avenue in Whitehall Township.

Bear caught at Whitehall Twp. cemetery

Wildlife officials were able to get the bear down after hitting her with a few tranquilizer darts. Then the bear was loaded onto a trailer attached to a game warden's vehicle for a return date with the wild.

This isn't the bear's first run-in with the Game Commission.

She was previously tagged after being caught up in Monroe County.
