State wildlife official Jennifer Churchill said Friday that the 91-kilogram male bear was tagged and taken to a remote area of ponderosa pines, oak brush and chokeberry.

The bear has become a celebrity since it wandered around a university residence hall in Boulder and climbed a tree Thursday. Wildlife officers eventually tranquilized it, and the bear dropped from its 4.5 metre-high perch onto pads placed on the ground.

It landed on its back before a crowd of gawking students.

Campus police spokesman Ryan Huff called it "a perfect landing."

I'm glad he is safe and hope he was released in a familiar area.
