A bear wandering the Stratmoor Hills area of Colorado Springs is wandering no more. Division of Wildlife officers tranquilized and captured the bear Wednesday afternoon near Academy and Maxwell. They say the bear is a year and a half old. Neighbors spotted the bear in a tree Wednesday. They had also seen it in ponds and other trees several other days this week.
The bear was what officers call a "first time offender," meaning it will be relocated.
