He must be getting used to the routine by now. For the sixth time in the last 18 months, the same bear has been captured by state wildlife officials in a residential area of New Jersey, and returned to the wild.

In the latest encounter, the 263-pound black bear was captured this week after climbing a tree in a suburban neighborhood in East Brunswick.

Once again, Bear Number 6131 was tranquilized and netted, and sent back into the wild.

A wildlife technician tells the Newark Star-Ledger that the three-year-old bear could be looking for a mate.
