The bear which has been roaming neighborhoods in Henrico's West End is finally caught.

According to Game and Inland Fisheries officials, the bear was trapped in a back yard off of Windingridge Road late Wednesday night.

The bear was uninjured, and will not likely have to be tranquilized. Instead, officials say the bear will be transported to a remote coastal region and released.

Officials think the bear made his way up the river into the Metro Richmond area.
