(Harrisburg) -- Upper Allen Township Police in Cumberland County say the Pennsylvania Game Commission captured an "elusive" black bear today.

The Game Commission tranquilized the bear for processing, but is expected to release it later.

Police had previously contacted the Pennsylvania Game Commission after receiving numerous reports of a black bear cub wandering around residential neighborhoods.
