ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they tranquilized and removed an uninvited black bear that showed up for a toddler's birthday party.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officers said they were called to an Orlando neighborhood Saturday on a report of a black bear invading a toddler's birthday party, WKMG-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported Monday.

"We kept the kids away because they don't know about the dangers with the bears," said Yvette Picasso, who was at the party.

The officers said the bear was tranquilized and loaded into a pickup truck. They said the animal will likely end up at the Ocala National Forest.
