A university in Colorado was forced to call authorities on Friday when a two year old bear was spotted high up in a tree.

The authorities waited four hours for the bear to come down from the tree on the University of Colorado Boulder campus before deciding to tranquilize the animal, The Denver Channel reported.

After being tranquilized by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife department, the bear was captured falling out of the tree by a collage photographer.

The department then loaded the bear into a trailer and relocated it to the mountains.

This was not the first bear to have fallen out of a tree on a Colorado university campus, however.

Three years ago a student photographer at the same university caught an image that went viral of a larger bear that refused to come down from a tree and was tranquilized, landing on a large mat. The photo caught the bear mid-air and the image quickly went viral.
