NBC News Channel
A bear that wondered around a New Jersey town all day Tuesday was finally tranquilized.
The bear was just "hanging around" when the drugs took effect.
It was a day long affair in Ridgewood, as police and neighbors followed him block to block..
The bear was finally chased up a large tree where animal control officers finally had a good shot and hit him with a tranquilizer dart.
As the drugs set in, he slowly began slipping down from the tree.
The bear was tagged and driven back to the woods in Northwest New Jersey.
