Maddie always wanted to see a Black Bear, She missed this one too !!!
This Black Bear was caught in someone's backyard. The PA Game Warden trapped this bear.
He used a large unit that works like the Have-a-Heart live trap.
Then they tranquilize the bear and tag him. That way when he shows up somewhere they know where it came from.
We all got pretty close to that thing. I even held it's head for this picture.
He woke up..then they took him up the mountain.
