Baby bear rescued from tree by DEC worker (VIDEO)

In this screenshot from video, a bear cub is stuck in a tree in Windham about 65 feet off the ground. The bear was cut from the tree and returned to the ground by DEC officer Anthony Glorioso.

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.
