Black bear outsmarts wildlife officials

PORT ORCHARD, WA 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.
