A bear is perched up a tree as city workers prepare to tranquilize the animal in Conway, Ark. Officials shot the bear with tranquilizer darts, causing him to fall asleep. They inflated two bouncy houses, usually reserved for children’s parties, beneath the tree. And then firefighters let loose with water from a fire hose, knocking the bear from his perch. The edge of the inflatable houses broke the bear's fall. Wildlife officials plan to release him back into the wild.
