A Michigan fire department was filmed lowering a black bear out of a tree over the weekend.

Firefighters are then seen holding a safety net to place the bear before transporting it out of the area. 

Officials said the bear was resting at about 20 feet up in the tree. 

But once it was hit with a dart, the bear climbed to about 65 feet high. 

Firefighters were able to use the ladder from their firetruck to hoist a crew member up in order to get a line around the animal's front paws. 

The bear, which appeared to be a cub, was later released into its natural habitat.
