A black bear, apparently sleeping off a honey binge, was removed from a Bozeman yard and released out of town.

Police say a Bozeman resident called Thursday morning after being unable to rouse the 25-year-old female bear from her slumber and scare her away.

Police reported on Facebook that it appeared the bear "partook" in the neighbor's honey bee hives before lying down to rest.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials tranquilized the bear and relocated it out of town.
