FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Farmington police and Game and Fish officers say a young bear is back in the wild after it was spotted in backyard of a business.

Yoga studio Owner Melissa Silversmith Firestone tells The Daily Times (https://bit.ly/2wIuRal) that the bear entered the yard on Monday by climbing over the fence. Officials say they tranquilized the 160-pound (73-kilogram) sub-adult black bear and loaded into the back of a state vehicle so it could be transported to the forest.

Police have confirmed that only one bear was in the area on Monday.
