    Is it just me or does this video make for fantastic admissions marketing?  Everyone is good looking (gorgeous, actually), clean green environment, not a single “um, like, you know” in the entire interview, sunny, and bears falling out of trees onto mattresses.

    CU now on the college list for the larvae, along with University of Maryland was it?  The one with the kickass band.

    The authorities tranq-darted a bear for peacefully occupying a tree — had they run out of pepper-spray and rubber bullets?

    You have drop bears over there too?

    Sometimes trying to pledge a frat goes wrong…

    So, did the bear hear that CU was doing bear studies or was he looking to crash a kegger?

    Heads up that you linked to the Colorado Daily version of the article. The CU Independent (the student newspaper) broke the story and took the photo. http://www.cuindependent.com/2012/04/26/bear-tranquilized-in-tree-near-will-vill/34196/

      My God, this is what happens when a bear event of this magnitude happens within a college campus known as a “party” school.  This bear is gonna be famous. (Colbert Report here he comes…)

    I love that little picture in the post.  I found a higher res version it was screenshot from…

    Ironic…the buildings right next to William’s Village are the Bear Creek Apartments. I rollerbladed past there this morning just as the guy in the big white hat was taking out his rifle. I figured it was just another tree’d mountain lion. Guess I missed the chance to see Bear Drop live.

    I’m surprised, that’s actually pretty far into town. The bear even had to cross the highway (probably under it, there’s an underpass right along the road that WillVill’s on). It’s surprising nobody noticed it earlier.  I’ll have to watch out for bears when I go on those late night walks.

    before this, i had only seen the still shot.

    i had preferred to think that the bear was flying away in search of the next “pic-a-nic basket.”

    “go, bear, go!” i thought.

    reality has come crashing down… nearly as hard as the bear.
