ALBUQUERQUE -- New Mexico Game and Fish officials spent the night hunting down a bear in northeast Albuquerque.

The bear was first spotted after 8 p.m. in a backyard on Blair Court, off Indian School near Tramway.

Officials tell KOB Eyewitness News 4 they caught the bear by darting her out of a tree. The bear is a young female, estimated to be around 8 months old.

Game and Fish will take the bear to the Wildlife Center, where a veterinarian will evaluate her. If she's healthy and large enough, she will be released back into the wild.

Right now, officials say there's a good chance the bear will need to stay at the Wildlife Center until she gets bigger.
