The Lucky Bear

© By Othmar Vohringer

A friend of mien sent me the following pictures in the email. Unfortunately my source had no knowledge of where this dramatic bear rescue action happened.

Rumor has it that the bear was walking across the bridge and when a car came along he got startled and run over the bridge and from their climbed over the railing onto bridge pillars. However this happened this is surely one lucky bear.

If you have any knowledge or details about this bear incident please let me know. Also if you have an interesting personal story or news involving wildlife or any other subject related to wildlife, hunting and, or fishing pass it on to me and it will be published here.

Stay tuned for my new series “The Outdoor Interview”. Today I will publish the first interview of many to come.

I saw this on TV. An incredible rescue and that is one lucky bear.

This was near Lake Tahoe, CA.

The most amazing thing was that rescuers were mostly members of the community (including several hunters) who mobilized together to get this bear off the bridge.

If I had time, I'd look up and link the related newspaper articles... they should be plenty available though if you want to do the search yourself.
