Dramatic bear rescue
I saw these photos - and others - on my desktop this morning at home and wondered where they came from. Apparently locals up near Tahoe in California rescued this 250-pound black bear that jumped off a bridge to avoid getting hit by passing cars. He then got stuck on a ledge.
It's an elaborate rescue.
Check out this story in the Tahoe Daily Tribune.
See the rescue photos side by side here.
Awesome job. The bear was urged back into the forest when it came to. I wonder when it'll venture near a road again!
