Tranquilized bear gets stuck in tree

A 200 pound black bear climbed up a tree in downtown Collbran, Colorado, and wouldn't come down.

Traffic had to be ushered along as drivers slowed down to catch a glimpse.

It took six tranquilizer darts from the Division of Wildlife to knock out the bear after a nearly four hour stand-off, but then it got stuck.

A wildlife officer had to climb the tree to dislodge the bear's leg. The bear was later re-located.
