CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Bear escapes through a manhole

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (NBC News) - A bear walks into a storm drain ...

It's not a joke, but reality for a bear caught on camera in Colorado Springs.

The bear, estimated to be about 3 or 4 years old, found himself in an underground storm drain after exploring a garbage can and berry-laden branches from a tree near the drain.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers removed a manhole cover to give the bear a way out, and watched a few hours later as he emerged through the opening.

CPW officers shouted and shot a non-deadly rubber slug to scare him away.
