Bear cub lingers on ledge of building in NC

March 3, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
Crowds gathered outside a downtown Asheville, N.C. hospital to see a bear cub perched on the building's ledge.

It marked the third bear sighting this week in the city.

Local authorities eventually trapped the bear after unsuccessfully trying to entice him down with pastries.

Wildlife officials planned to evaluate the bear before deciding whether to release him back into the wild.

It's not clear if the captured bear is the one behind all three sightings.
