You've probably heard of firefighters rescuing a cat from a tree, but how about a bear?

That's exactly what happened in an Oklahoma neighborhood.

Wildlife officers cornered a young black bear that had been roaming around for several days until a couple drinking their morning coffee spotted it.

The officers used tranquilizers to put the bear to sleep, then realized his foot was caught on a branch.

Firefighters had to use their ladder truck to get the bear down.

After a health screening, it will be released back into the wild.
