NBC 10 reports that “Phillipsburg High School in Warren County, N.J. opened 90 minutes late Friday morning after someone spotted a bear high up in a tree on the Hillcrest Boulevard campus.”
The Express-Times reports: “A black bear that took up residence overnight in a tree on the Phillipsburg High School campus was tranquilized about 9:45 this morning by a fish and wildlife officer and fell into a net.”
Classes were eventually re-opened, though an outdoor physical education class was canceled for the day. Authorities took three-and-a-half hours to tranquilize the bear and bring it down out of the tree.
