Black bear pays visit to N.J. league office
HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. (4/26/11)--A 300-lb. baby black bear caused quite a commotion on the New Jersey Turnpike and in the New Jersey Credit Union League's parking lot recently, with news helicopters recording the event on video. On April 15, the bear rummaged through garbage cans for food before climbing a tree overlooking the turnpike near Exit 8, said the league (The Daily Exchange April 21). Construction workers discovered the bear in the league parking lot before office hours. No league employees had a close encounter with the critter. State wildlife biologists and firefighters used a tranquilizer and a Fire Department cherry picker to pluck the bear from the tree. To watch an Associated Press video of the action, use the link.
