It was a bear of a day for employees at a northern New Jersey office complex after a young black bear decided to come to work.

The bear was spotted roaming the area Thursday in Parsippany, about 30 miles northwest of New York City.

Rangers cornered the animal and shot it with a tranquilizer gun. Officials say it weighed more than 150 pounds.

After sleeping it off, the bear was taken to Black River County Park in Chester Township and released.

Alison Glazer-Baurenfind tells The Daily Record of Parsippany she lives in Sussex County where there are a lot of bears, but this was a first.
