Guess what was hanging out in a tree in downtown Rochester on Sunday. This friendly but confused black bear took a stroll down the center of town around 6:30 am, and got spooked up into this tree by a passerby. Doesn't he look squishy and cuddly? It was a very hot day and he napped up there all day. Finally they tranqulized him in the cool of the evening and by 11pm they had him out of there and on his way to the woods.
When I say downtown, I am talking MIDDLE OF THE CITY - this tree is in the triangle across from Kelly's Gymnastics, right in the center of the town. This certainly caused quite a stir, and lots of onlookers.
By the way, it is right down the street from the old Clinton Headquarters where some guy took a couple of hostages last year.
Rochester NH certainly is a happening place.
