Florida wildlife officers said the yearling bear was spotted Monday morning near a Fort Myers apartment complex.
The Naples Daily News reports that a resident saw the wildlife officers place waffles stuffed with something in a container and then put the container in the trap to lure the bear inside.
Unsurprisingly, the bear was trapped without incident soon after. It will be released in a less populated area.
State officers relocated 87 bears in 2017. The agency euthanized 36 conflict bears- animals causing a problem around people - and relocated 50 nuisance bears in 2016.
