Roaming young bear caught in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Game and Fish officials have caught a small bear roaming around northeast Albuquerque.

KOB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/135f7xc) that the young female bear was captured late Sunday after being spotted near Tramway.

Officials say they caught the bear by darting her out of a tree. The bear is a young female, estimated to be around 8 months old.

Game and Fish will take the bear to the Wildlife Center, where a veterinarian will evaluate her. If she's healthy and large enough, officials say she will be released back into the wild.
