Fire Department Helps Rescue Black Bear From Tree in Roscommon County

The Roscommon Township Fire Department was called to 16th Street in Denton Township to help remove a black bear from a tree on Sunday.

We have all heard about fire departments helping rescue a cat in a tree but rarely do we hear about a bear.

They say the DNR shot the bear with a tranquilizer dart before it was safely lowered from the branches.

It was then brought down into a net.

The fire dept. says the bear was tagged and will soon be released back into the wild.
