Photos by Rhonda Costa-Landers/Nevada AppealA bear is perched in a cottonwood tree Tuesday afternoon in Treadway Park, at the back of the former Carson-Tahoe Hospital. The bear, about 30 feet up in the tree, was left in there rather than take the chance it could be injured getting out of the tree if tranquilized, said Wildlife biologist Carl Lackey. The bear is older and in poor shape, he said.
