Emergency crews in Tahelquah used tranquilizers and a net to get a bear out of a neighborhood tree.

The bear was spotted by lawn crews on Wednesday afternoon, they saw it run across a yard and climb the tree.  The bear stayed up there while people surrounded it and wildlife experts were called in to get it out of the tree.

They used two tranquilizers to get the bear out of the tree and then caught it in a safety net as it fell.
