This poor guy was in this tree at 7:30 am and was still in the same tree at 8 pm.

At lunchtime, there was quite a crowd milling about, including Aspen police officers and Colorado Department of Wildlife officers. The DOW officers were doing a fine public relations job, patiently fielding questions from the visitors. No, the bear wasn't going to be tranquilized nor would he be put down. He wasn't doing anything wrong. He was not tagged. He had no strikes. He was likely up the tree because he had gotten spooked and he would come down when he wasn't spooked any longer.

I wonder if he's still up there . . .
