LITTLETON, Colo. (KDVR) — A 1 ½ year old female bear was removed last night from a tree in the 7100 block of S. Windermere Street near Heritage High School in Littleton. The bear is believed to be the same one seen wandering the streets in Highlands Ranch Friday, July 17.

“We tranquilized it and South Metro Fire Rescue was called to the scene to help us get the bear out of the tree. We’ll be releasing it today in a remote location on the Pike National Forest,” said Jason Clay, Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
