STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – Another photographer in Colorado has captured a great image of a bear falling from a tree.

First there was the falling bear photo taken in Boulder that went viral, now we’ve got a photo of a bear in a headfirst freefall in Steamboat Springs.

Wildlife officers tranquilized the bear on Wednesday.

The fire department came out to help when the bear got stuck between tree limbs.

They nudged the bear until it fell upside down and landed safely on a tarp.

The bear was relocated.
