Environmental police captured a 100-pound black bear that was on the loose in Lawrence, Massachusetts, on Monday.
According to The Eagle-Tribune, the bear was spotted running through back yards in the Tower Hill neighborhood just before noon and was last seen on Floral Street.
The bear was eventually cornered in an enclosed back yard with three boats in it. The bear was spotted by police hiding between two of the boats, and later moved underneath a tree.
Around 1 p.m., the 2-year-old bear was hit with two tranquilizer darts and environmental police were able to safely remove the animal from the neighborhood. The animal was placed on ice to control its body temperature and will eventually be dropped back into the wild.
More than a dozen neighbors could be seen surrounding the pickup truck the bear was placed in to take photos and video.
"I'm very surprised," said John King, who lives near wehre the bear was hiding. "I didn't know there were any black bears in Massachusetts. They should go back to New Hampshire."
The street next to the yard was temporarily blocked off to traffic with police tape but has since been reopened.
