There's a bear way up there

Ethan Weston, Buffalo Bulletin

A black bear sits in a tree in Willow Grove Cemetery in Buffalo on July 26. The bear was first spotted near Meadowlark Elementary School before crossing Cemetery Road. Police and Game and Fish wardens followed it and attempted to corner it so they could tranquilize it. Unfortunately, the bear climbed about 50 feet up the tree and couldn't be safely tranquilized, so wardens closed the cemetery and waited for the bear to come down. It finally did and moved out of the cemetery during the night. There have been no sightings of the bear since.
