Hairy landing!!! Fresh out of hibernation, and likely hungry, a 200-pound male bear wandered around the University of Colorado Boulder campus-housing Thursday for 2 and a half hours.
 
After resting in a tree — a tranquilizer induced a 20-foot fall that brought the animal to earth. The Daily Camera bears the witness reaction.  

“And I just saw this big bear stuck in a tree outside of my dorm and it was awesome because they had to dart it, and then it fell out, and then we got to touch it, and it was amazing."

KUSA was on scene to turn the event into a story. Seeing a bear is remarkable to some but what about being bumped?

“A male bear came up into this branch and then just rested up there for about 2 hours. That’s where he came from. The commotion commenced around 8 in the morning. For some the encounter was close. It actually touched me yeah, it ran into me.”

The tranquilized bear was tagged and relocated to the foothills west of Boulder.
