Buckhead bear gets new home

Posted: Updated:

A bear spotted in Buckhead a few days ago by residents has a new home thanks to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

State rangers tracked the bear Friday night, darted the animal, and took him to their headquarters in Social Circle.

CBS46 received exclusive video of the black bear running in a neighborhood from a family's home security camera.

The bear was checked out to make sure he was healthy, and he was released in northeast Georgia Saturday.
