Oregon Children Get a Bear Day
Tualatin Elementary School was canceled Wednesday due to a 200 pound bear running in the field near by. Children who showed up to school before the cancellation announcement got to watch as wildlife officials tried to capture the bear. The bear was able to elude the officials, and then was tranquillized. The bear fell asleep in a tree, but did not fall into the net beneath. A firefighter climbed up the tree, fashioned a harness around the bear who was then brought down safely. The bear will be released into the coastal mountain region, from AJC.com.
