Wild Bear Breaks Into Idaho Zoo
Imagine doing your daily rounds as a zookeeper and you look up and see some strange, random black bear 50 feet in the air, climbing a tree. It sounds normal because it's a zoo but this black bear is from the wild and nobody had any idea where it came from or why it was there.
According to the Idaho Statesman, the black bear broke into Zoo Idaho in Pocatello yesterday and zoo officials immediately closed the zoo to keep visitors and the bear safe. Idaho Fish and Game were called in and the goal was to safely tranquilize the bear so that they could place it back into the wild.
The bear received a collar and ear tag so officials can keep an eye on it and make sure it's safe. The bear was caught and released without incident and the zoo is back open.
Zoo Idaho currently has two black bears named Stripes and Shoni. We're not sure if the visitor was able to hang out with Stripes and Shoni or not but it seems that everyone is now safe and where they're supposed to be.
