Just after 9 p.m., Manitoba conservation officials brought it down with a tranquilizer pole, which has a dart connected to the end of it.

The bear dropped into a blanket and was put into a cage by conservation officials.

Residents tell Global News there had been sightings of the bear over the last few days.
