DEC Darts And Safely Relocates Large BEAR
City of Newburgh – Police responded to a black bear in a tree on Washington Terrace earlier this week. The bear was in front of Sears Restaurant Supply. Police Officers and State Trooper and DEC Police officers stood by until a DEC official showed up with a tranquilizer gun. The bear was shot and fell onto a inflatable mat and was then transported by DEC Police officers to a vehicle and relocated to a area north of Newburgh.
