OLD FORGE, Pa. -- Residents of Old Forge gave pause to the sight of two bears in a tree in Lackawanna County.

Neighbors made the not so grizzly discovery Thursday night and called the game commission, who arrived Friday afternoon.

The bears were tranquilized around 4:30 p.m.

The bears will be tagged and released elsewhere before surely settling in for winter hibernation.
