VIDEO: Tennessee wildlife officials remove bear from campus stadium
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee wildlife officials have removed a 200-pound bear from the University of Tennessee's Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
According to a post on the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency's official Facebook page, a UT police officer notified the agency of a bear wandering the campus around 4 a.m. on Sunday.
Wildlife officers responded and were able to quickly tranquilize the female black bear and remove her.
They released her into the Foothills Wildlife Management Area in Blount County later that morning. A video of the release shows the still-groggy bear stumbling off of a trailer and wandering into the woods.
