These are some amazing shots. A bear was walking across Rainbow
Bridge (Old Hwy 40 at Donner Summit, Truckee California) on Saturday when
two cars also crossing the bridge scared the bear into jumping over the
edge of the bridge. Somehow the bear caught the ledge and was able to pull
itself to safety. Authorities decided that nothing could be done to help
Saturday night so they returned Sunday morning to find the bear sound
asleep on the ledge. After securing a net under the bridge the bear was
tranquilized, fell into the net, lowered, then woke up and walked out of
the net.

    I’m talking about bears in general, you fucking idiot.

    All people deserve very good life time and credit loans or just secured loan would make it better. Just because freedom relies on money.

    You say your speaking about bears in general, though you specifically said “this” bear not “A” or “some” bear, leading me to believe that you are infact the “fucking idiot” as you say. Anyways, when a bear does something like what you were describing, it is either out of fear or from hunger, and they are acting instinctively. While i can understand where you are coming from, a bear doing something like that does not believe it is doing anything wrong. Thats like how you as a human might go hunt deer or shoot someone who broke into your house.… Read more »
