A young black bear has outsmarted wildlife officials trying to trap it in Washington state. Washington Fish and Wildlife Department agents are tracking the bear Tuesday near Port Orchard. So far, the bear has withstood a tranquilizer dart Monday and resisted a trap baited with doughnuts, marshmallows and maple syrup.

Sgt. Ted Jackson says agents are following the bear to make sure it stays away from schools.

He says if agents get a clear shot, they'll try to dart it again. If the bear remains in the area, they'll try again to trap it and relocate it.
