NEWINGTON, Conn. (AP) – Authorities say a bear that wandered around a Connecticut town this week has been tranquilized and relocated.

The Hartford Courant reports that police say the 180-pound black bear was spotted Wednesday at a Newington country club. It then moved into a neighborhood.

Representatives of the state Department of Energy & Environment Protection searched for the bear after it was reported by residents.

Animal Control Officer Deborah Monde says it was eventually found in a tree, tranquilized and safety moved to a new home.
