TUALATIN - A Tualatin school has a new mascot thanks to an uninvited visitor from the woods earlier this month.

The black bear that had wandered down from the mountains, then played a game of cat-and-mouse for hours with wildlife officials, before it was tranquilized and later released in the Coast Range.
