A bear cub was shot with a tranquilizer by authorities in California after it got stuck up a pine tree while scavenging for food…

A tranquillised bear falls out of a tree. LA city firefighters and animal control officers safely got a 100-plus pound bear out of the tree on 12031 N Stewarton Drive in Los Angeles. The bear was shot with a tranquilliser dart and it fell onto a tarpaulin which had been set up under the tree, missing the huge air mattress that had also been set up. The bear suffered no injuries and it will be taken back up into mountains above Porter Ranch and released back into the wild

The black cub fell about 15 feet from the tree…
