COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — A young male bear was relocated after it had wandered into Commerce City overnight Friday.

Wildlife officers with Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) tranquilized the bear and moved it to a more “appropriate bear habitat,” the CPW NE tweeted.

The same bear has been spotted in communities around the area over the past month, wildlife officials said.

This bear was first reported in Fort Lupton in mid-May and in Brighton last week.
