A bear cub whose neck was stuck in a tree was rescued Tuesday by an environmental conservation officer with the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
The department said the bear at the Windham Mountain Village was stuck in a limb about 65 feet above the ground. Officer Anthony Glorioso was able to reach to the bear with the help of a local construction company’s boom crane.
Cutting through a tree branch with a chainsaw, Mr. Glorioso was able to bring the bear down to the ground, at which point the bear ran off into the woods.
