A 200-pound black bear was spotted roaming around the University of Tennessee in Knoxville early Sunday morning, leading university police to call the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency for help.
When wildlife officials caught up with the bear, they found him stuck inside Lindsey Nelson Stadium, home of the Volunteers baseball team.
Sgt. Roy Smith and Officer Jeff Roberson of the TWRA quickly tranquilized the bear, the agency said. UTPD officers assisted in the safe removal of the bear.
The TWRA said the bear was not hurt. It’s already been released in the Foothills Wildlife Management Area in Blount County.
