Help me understand…

… how a 2-year old dehydrated bear with his head stuck in a jar for over a week couldn’t have been tranquilized – yes, even in a “busy” town – and relocated, instead of being killed?

 

Efforts to tranquilise the animal failed because the bear “stayed in forested areas”, he said.

Mr Naplin said the bear was “in pretty tough condition” after being unable to eat or drink for several days because of the 2.5-gallon (9.5-litre) plastic jar on its head.

Officials knew the jar had been stuck on his head for many days.  It was not going to fall off suddenly.  It was not going to break.  Why could he not have been tranquilized?
