Black Bear Tranquilized and Moved 6 Times
On a quest for love, a young black bear has been roaming throughout New Jersey looking for a mate. Kim Tinnes a wildlife services technician first encountered this bear in May 2010, when the bear was tagged, tattooed with #6131 on his lip, and collared. Since then they have tranquilized and moved the bear a total of six times. The bear has lost weight from trekking about 100 miles a week. There may be a decent number of female black bears everywhere he has been, but with his young age he would have to fight larger male bears, he has scars to prove that he has fought. Black bear 6131 is just unlucky in love, more often the target of a tranquilizer dart than Cupid's arrow. When bear 6131 is tranquilized wildlife officials remove him to a state wildlife area.
