LAKEWOOD -- An unwanted guest caused a bit of a commotion Friday afternoon in the Pierce County town of Lakewood.

People living in the area of Lakeholme Road and Veterans Drive called police when they spotted a bear running around.

Wildlife experts managed to safely tranqualize the animal.

The 160-pound bear - believed to be about two-and-a-half years old - was relocated to someplace safer for him and humans.
