For the first time here, we are being taught how to tranquilize
On June 9, authorities were able to tranquilize
and remove another male black bear after it wandered into the backyard of a home at 12 Idalla Ave.
WORCESTER - A state Environmental Police officer shot and killed a 200-pound adolescent male black bear yesterday morning, roughly 25 yards off Interstate 290 at the Hope Avenue ramp, after authorities were unable to herd the cornered animal up a tree to safely tranquilize
Finally, in the continuing attempts to tranquilize
the bear, it was cornered and another dart found its target.
The amount of drugs to effectually tranquilize
a tiger was unknown.
The Fisheries & Wildlife Web site says officials would first watch the bear from a distance, giving it time to move on; use hazing techniques to move the animal in a specific direction; or tranquilize
it and move it to a less populated area for release.
Why didn't they try to tranquilize
him first and shoot second?
The hope was that Officer Brighenti would be able to shoot the bear with darts and tranquilize
it so it could be taken to an unpopulated area and released.
