The bear was spotted in Roxborough on Thursday morning, one day after it was seen roaming around East Falls.
Thelma Barnes recorded video of the bear around 11:20 a.m. and called police.
#Update He looks more Boo-Boo, than Yogi! Game warden shot him twice with a tranquilizer— once in the shoulder, second in the rear. He’s a 2 year old bear, estimates for weight is now at 150 pounds @6abc pic.twitter.com/81SApCnICm— Christie Ileto (@Christie_Ileto) June 13, 2019
The young bear, estimated to be around 2 years old, searched through a dumpster outside the Henry on the Park apartment complex on the 7900 block of Henry Avenue.
"I was coming back from going to the store. I was pulling around to park the car and I saw a baby bear. He was in the dumpster, pulled out trash, on the ground, going back on top of the dumpster. He was just having a ball back there," Barnes said with a laugh.
The bear was also spotted in Andorra on Thursday morning. Last week, the bear was roaming the Warrington area.
The bear was shot with a tranquilizer late Thursday afternoon.
Estimated at 150 pounds, it took four officers to load him into the crate.
The plans are to tag the bear, and then release him into the wild near the Berks/ Schuylkill county line, where he'll have plenty of space to roam free.
