Bear Sighted, Tranquilized at Avimor

Posted By on Mon, Sep 10, 2012 at 10:14 AM

An Avimor resident reported a bear at the housing area between Boise and Horseshoe Bend to the Ada County Sheriff's Office Sunday afternoon.

The bear was spotted when it approached a home in the housing division. When deputies responded, it retreated to the creek that runs along Highway 55.

Fish and Game officers arrived at the scene and estimated that the yearling bear weighs 80 pounds. They tranquilized the bear so they could remove it from the area, but it climbed a tree, hampering the officers' efforts.
