Video: Urban Bear Removal

Bear on a roof in downtown Juneau

On September 21, the Juneau Empire reported that a bear had gotten into the Alaskan city’s downtown area and entered a yogurt shop and grocery store parking lot. He was tranquilized when he made his way to a residential area and posted up on a stairwell and roof. Later he was discovered to be the same bear that had twice before been removed from the area and relocated. As the bear was a “repeat offender” that had become comfortable around humans, he was euthanized for public safety.

Fast forward to 7:51 to view footage of his actual removal.
