Man-animal conflict once again came to the fore in Karimnagar when a wild bear entered a BSNL telephone exchange office here on Thursday. However, a rescue team from the Warangal Zoo, tranquillized and rescued the animal, said Telangana forest department officials. The unlikely visitor was sighted by a security guard at the exchange. Police and fire department officials immediately rushed to the area to rescue the animal, added officials. All commercial establishments near the building were closed down by officials to prevent any untoward incident. The bear might have ventured out in search of food or water from nearby forests, said, officials, adding that it will be released into the wild later.
