A black bear was removed from a tall tree Sunday morning in Michigan.

The Roscommon Township Fire Department said they were called Sunday to assist the Michigan Department of Natural Resources with removing a black bear from a tree in Denton Township.

The department posted a video on Facebook of the removal.

“Initially the bear was approximately 20 feet up! The tranquilizing process cause him to climb to approximately 65 feet! We are very pleased the situation ended peacefully with this amazing animal unharmed and no confrontation between him and citizens!” the department wrote in the comments.
