Neighborhood Black Bear Relocated

Conway Police Officers responded to a call of a baby bear being sighted on Hillman Street near South Davis Street. Upon arrival the bear was located, except it wasn’t a baby, it was a full grown male Black Bear. The animal had treed itself and refused to emerge even after officers had retreated.

Arkansas Game and Fish Officers responded to assist and were able to tranquilize the bear and safely get it out of the tree. The bear was then taken to a secluded, wooded area in Faulkner County where it was released.

Assisting in the relocation were officers from UCA PD, the Conway Animal Welfare Unit and firefighters from the Conway Fire Department.   MORE
