Do you remember this male black bear that became famous after the release of this photo? Sadly, on Thursday he was struck and killed by two cars on U.S. 36 in Colorado.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials identified it as the same bear that fell from a tree on the University of Colorado Boulder’s campus on April 26, 2012.

The bear was spotted wandering around the campus and was safely tranquilized by wildlife officials. After tranquilized, the bear fell gracefully from the tree and Andy Duann, senior and photographer for student newspaper the CU Independent, was lucky enough to capture it.

“Without brushing my teeth, I pulled my pants on and ran all the way down five floors and across the school,” Duann told PEOPLE. “I was so excited. I was late for class, but it was such a rush.”

After chilling in a tree for about two hours, the 200-lb. bear fell and was cushioned by mats.

Jennifer Churchill, spokesperson for Parks and Wildlife told the Boulder Daily Camera, “It’s a bummer. It’s so hard to go through this and not be able to give these bears a good place to live.”
