poor bear. what was he doing that was so awful?

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!

Poor bear!!!

At 200+ pounds, let's hope that tranquilizer relaxed the bear enough so that nothing was broken in the fall.

Would you rather have the bear shot? I am glad they used a tranquilizer this time.

How can people do something so stupid and thoughtless! Oh I forgot! It's only a bear!

So you shoot a dart at a bear that is sitting in a tree and you are surprised it falls? Did you forget the concept of gravity?

I hope he isn't hurt.

I hope the bear is safe.
