He could have been left alone if all the bear was doing was sitting in a tree, he would have eventually come down and wander off elsewhere. Had he been crashing through someone's window then that is the time to call wildlife officials but sitting in a tree minding his or her own business, ridiculous!

I hope he isn't hurt.

I hope the bear is safe.
