Black bear captured in Lower Allen

The Pennsylvania Game Commission tranquilized and removed a young black bear from a Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County neighborhood Wednesday.

Township police said the bear was sighted in the 200 block of Deerfield Road in the Allendale Development shortly after noon.

Police and wildlife conservation officers followed the bear through several neighborhoods until it attempted to cross Interstate 83 and was turned back by traffic. It then went up a tree in the area of Shoreham Road.

Police said the bear was tranquilized and safely removed from the tree, then transported to another location.
