Black bear returns 3 times to area in Florida Panhandle near Panama City

Officials are hoping the third time is a charm for a 350-pound black bear found sleeping in a Florida Panhandle tree.

The bear has been caught and tagged and removed from the area twice since April. But he keeps finding his way back to the Panama City area.

On Monday, he was spotted in a pine tree outside the Shalimar Yacht Basin.

He was first spotted April 14 near a Panama City elementary school. The Northwest Florida Daily News (http://bit.ly/1pSEloG) reports wildlife officials relocated him 90 miles away to Mud Swamp in Apalachicola National Forest. It took him three weeks but he made it back to the neighborhood.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission worked with Eglin Air Force Base to remove him but he returned on Monday.
