Bear Almost Crashes Parade

Posted: Updated:

Amongst the hundreds of entries in this year's Nevada Day Parade was an unexpected...almost-parade crasher. A black bear wandered into an east Carson City neighborhood early Saturday morning.

Sheriff's deputies kept onlookers back while wildlife officials tranquilized the bear in a backyard on Joshua Drive. They say the 400 pound black bear will sleep off the tranquilizers overnight and that Sunday morning he's be transported up into the hills above Carson City and released.

They also say it's the third black bear to have visited Carson City this week.
