BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Drought concerns could mean more bears may head into towns and cities in Colorado during the warm months this year, and on Thursday one showed near the University of Colorado campus.

The 200 pound bear was spotted in a tree near the Williams Village housing complex in the morning.

He had been spotted earlier as well, before he found his spot in the tree.

Wildlife officers tranquilized him and he fell onto padded mats. Officials said the bear will be relocated.
