The black bear who roamed Cape Cod for more than two weeks, attracting quite a bit of attention along the way, is in good condition after he was tranquilized in Wellfleet and released in Central Massachusetts, state wildlife officials said Tuesday.
“By 9 p.m. [Tuesday] night the young male bear . . . was transported and released by MassWildlife biologists to within the range of other bears in Central Massachusetts,” the state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife said in a statement. “MassWildlife biologists and Environmental Police monitored the bear overnight and reported the bear is in good condition.”
