Castle Rock, Colorado — According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), a 300-pound black bear that found a tree in Castle Rock on Wednesday morning is on its way to a new wild house.
The bear was found early Wednesday in the neighborhood of the founder near Mikelson Boulevard and Brantly Avenue in Castle Rock. Castle Rock police and CPW monitored him all day to make sure he stayed in the tree throughout his busy morning and afternoon hours.
Initially, CPW said he wanted to leave the bear alone and let the bear out of the tree himself at dusk when the neighborhood was quiet. However, at some point it was decided to move the bear on Thursday morning instead.
According to CPW, it’s not uncommon for bears to come to Castle Rock, especially outside the house with lots of bird feeders and litter. According to CPW, this is especially true as the peak of bulimia, which is the time when bears seek food almost constantly, approaches. According to CPW, wildlife officials usually do not move bears out of the area, but have been in the backyard for more than 24 hours, so they decide to make sure they are healthy.
