New Mexico Game and Fish were called in to respond to several bear sightings reported to police Wednesday.
The first call came in at 1:45 a.m., in the 1000 block of Canyon Road, Lt. Reggie Briggle said.
To divert the large bear lumbering around that area, officiels fire rounds of rubber buckshot, which chased the furry animal back down into the canyon.
At 7:29 p.m., Game and Fish agents tranquilized and captured another bear on Camino Uva on North Mesa.
That bear has already been relocated into the wild, Briggle said.
