BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Colorado wildlife officials used tranquilizer darts to relocate four bears that were found wandering in Boulder.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Kris Middledorf told the Daily Camera (http://goo.gl/HDkANE ) that a mother and her two cubs were seen climbing a tree in a residential yard Wednesday morning. The mother bear had climbed a tree when wildfire officers tranquilized her. She fell, and wildlife officers caught her.

One of her two cubs also was tranquilized. Both were put in a cage with their mother.

Later Wednesday, wildlife officers had to tranquilize another bear that was also in a residential area in Boulder.

Wildlife officials say a lot of bears have wandered into Front Range cities recently because of a shortage of food in their natural habitat.
