BEDFORD HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — A black bear chased up a tree by police near a northeast Ohio apartment complex eluded multiple captors and eventually headed back to the woods.
Cuyahoga County Wildlife Officer Jesse Janosik says the bear should eventually reach Cuyahoga Valley National Park after passing through Cleveland Metroparks' Bedford Reservation.
Janosik tells The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer Tuesday the bear was 5 feet tall and weighed between 125 and 150 pounds.
Police placed honey buns near the tree to lure the bear down while firefighters doused it with water and a snow fence was erected around the tree.
Janosik said the area was too populated to risk a tranquilizer, which can be slow-acting.
The bear ignored all measures and eventually climbed down Tuesday afternoon and headed for woods near Interstate 271.
