Colorado Parks and Wildlife Officers with the help of Colorado Springs Fire crews rescued a baby bear cub from a tree in Colorado Springs Friday.

The bear was near the Hillside Community Center and had to be lured onto a ladder and then lowered into a kennel.

Wildlife officers described the cub as orphaned on twitter and they said the bear will be taken to a rehabilitation center.

They chronicled the rescue on twitter and said the rescue was used as a teaching moment for neighborhood kids who came to watch the rescue unfold.
