There have been reports of a bear in Ewing Township recently and today they were confirmed. Personnel from the New Jersey Division of Division of Fish & Wildlife came to tranquilize the 171lb creature who was none too frisky anyway wearing his fur coat in this area's oppressive heatwave.
Ewing Township police directed the "bearhunt"...
...while neighbors watched.
The bear was tagged, tattooed, weighed...
and splashed with cooling water before being taken away to be released in a more suitable neighborhood (for large furry creatures).
