    A baby bear was stuck in a tree near a school in Paramus for a few hours on Thursday.

    The bear, thought to be a yearling between 1 and 2 years old, was spotted in a tree near the Parkway School on Ridgewood Avenue.  

    After a few hours in tree as police watched from below, the 98-pound bear was tranquilized by state wildlife authorities and it fell from the tree.  

    The cub will be tagged and taken to a sanctuary in northwest Jersey, authorities said.
