Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists has released a bear captured Wednesday after roaming in a field next to Tualatin Elementary School. The bear was released into an aspen grove in the Oregon Coast Range Mountains west of Carlton at approximately 11 a.m. yesterday. The bear appeared a little groggy but overall was in good condition when it stepped out of the trap where it had been held captive since the previous day when it was treed in a Tualatin neighborhood. Biologists wanted to make sure the bear was in good health before it was released into the wild. The release site in the Oregon Coast Range was selected for an abundance of food, water and cover.
