Massachusetts Environmental Police Officers started working on a plan to get them out of the neighborhood safely.

The larger bear was hit with a tranquilizer dart and fell out of the tree.

The smaller bear was still perched up high in the tree for several more minutes before it was also hit with a dart.

The little bear fell safely into a giant tarp.

Both were moved to a “wooded location,” according to Environmental Police. They said the bears were probably drawn to the Amesbury neighborhood by bird feeders and a chicken coop.
