SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Conservation officers with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish have captured a black bear that wandered into the center of Santa Fe.
Albuquerque television station KOB-TV reports the bear was first spotted at about 6:30 a.m. Sunday.
A few hours later, the bear was found along the Santa Fe River, two blocks from the city's historic plaza.
Officers tranquilized the bear. They believe it may have been injured because it remained in the same place for so long.
The crowd that gathered to watch the bear included actor and Santa Fe area resident Val Kilmer.
