Nevada Department of Wildlife representatives released a two-year-old male black bear back into the wild Friday after it was caught and tranquilized the day before in Incline Village.

NDOW says the 160-pound male was released using aversive conditioning where bears are shot with rubber bullets and are chased by dogs.
