What's better than a drugged bear safely falling out of a tree and being the subject of a hilarious photo? That happening twice. At the same place.
He came bear-elling down.

Friday was a wonderful day, because Friday was the day that a bear climbed a tree on the University of Colorado Boulder campus and decided to take a nap. After he was up there for four hours or so, wildlife officials decided to tranquilize the bear in order to remove him. As the two-year-old bear fell from the tree, school photographer Glenn Asakawa took this picture of him falling like Alice fell into Wonderland, if Wonderland consisted of a crash pad, a bunch of wilderness officials, and summertime college students.
If this is giving you deja vu, it's either because you've tranquilized a small bear and watched him fall from a tree, or because you remember when this exact same thing happened at the University of Colorado at Boulder three years ago:
Now, these pictures are fun to look at, but I also think it's time for the University of Colorado to admit that they don't have enough student housing for bears. Your bear students are literally SLEEPING IN TREES, guys, and the way that you thank them is by tranquilizing them? What if those bears were trying to just take quick naps before important tests!? For shame, University of Colorado. FOR SHAME.
