It was a bear of a day for employees at a northern New Jersey office complex after a young black bear decided to come to work.      

The bruin was spotted roaming the grounds of the Octagon 10 Office Center off Route 10 in Parsippany Thursday.      

Rangers cornered the animal, which officials say weighed about 154 pounds, and shot it with a tranquilizer gun.      

After sleeping it off, the bear was taken to Black River County Park in Chester Township and released.      

Alison Glazer-Baurenfind tells The Daily Record of Parsippany she lives in Sussex County where there are a lot of bears, but this was a first.
