The Flagstaff Fire Department and Arizona Game and Fish officials responded to a call Monday morning of a black bear in a tree at the Arizona ADOT building in West Flagstaff. Fire crews, along with wildlife officials, decided Flagstaff Fire’s ladder truck would be best suited to get the bear down from the tree. The bear was tranquilized and safely put in the platform and was lowered down to safety. There were no injuries to humans or the bear. There’s no word on what will happen to the bear, but it will likely be taken deep into the forest and let go, allowing it to continue being a bear.
