Fair Lawn NJ,  on Friday a bear climbed a tree in the backyard of a residential area, and would not come down.

For several hours, the 130-pound bear plopped on the tree branch, right in the middle of homes and office buildings near the very busy Fair Lawn Avenue.

Fair Lawn residents first reported it around 7 30 a.m. , as the word got out the tree bond bear drew quite a crowd .Dozens of staff members from animal control, New Jersey Fish and Wild Life, plus Fair Lawn Police and firefighters all teamed up to get him down safe and sound.

The reported 2-year-old bear was smarter than the average bear ,commuted from  New York down Saddle River Trails. Several day ago the Ridgewood blog reported  he was spotted Valleau Cemetery in Ridgewood .

Finally, a wildlife expert loaded up the dart gun with tranquilizer then shot the bear as it slowly crawled down the tree and fell a few feet into a net. Animal control will be taking the bear to western New Jersey and releasing it back into the wild.
