The two-year-old black bear was spotted in a tree on the Boulder campus on Friday morning, and officials with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department were called in to shoot the trespasser with a tranquilizer dart. The drowsy bear then plummeted from the tree and landed uninjured on a padded mat.

Officials say that the bear will be relocated into the mountains above the city.
