TAMPA --
Residents in a Tampa neighborhood are getting a furry surprise Friday morning.

A black bear was found in a tree at 2817 Broad Street W. The report about the bear came in shortly after 8 a.m.

Deputies and wildlife officers responded to the scene, and shortly after 10 a.m., they shot the bear with a tranquilizer dart. The official shot him again several minutes later, and the bear fell out of the tree.

The bear was reportedly on the ground in the back yard, and the deputy who spotted him said he "ran up the tree faster than a squirrel."

Bear no stranger to human interaction

Officials said the bear, which appears to weigh about 400 pounds, has a tag, which means he has interacted with humans before.

According to FWC spokesman Gary Morse, the bear was originally found in Orlando months ago. Wildlife officials trapped him and took him to the Ocala National Forest, which is where officials said they plan to return the bear.

This is the second time a black bear has been spotted in the Bay area this month. Earlier this month, a Spring Hill resident snapped a photo of a 400-pound bear as it stood in his back yard. There is no word as to whether this is the same bear.

Male black bears normally weigh between 250 and 450 pounds, while females normally weigh between 125 and 250 pounds.

About 3,000 black bears are estimated to live in Florida, with most of them living in national parks and wildlife refuges. According to the FWC, the nearest location with a high concentration of black bears is the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge.

That's right K. Go there immediately and let him know what a big boy he is (or girl. You may have to determine this first). Then proceed to give it kisses.

It's the only way. coffeetime.gif

Please post pics here.

Quote:A plan for long-term conservation of the Florida black bear, whose population is estimated at more than 3,000 today, compared with as few as 300 in the 1970s,

Well, it looks like their numbers have increased substantially over time, and the black bear has always been a native species of Florida.
