Bear Falls from Ledge... Happy Ending!

  1. I got this email today from my uncle in Florida. Not exactly new, but very funny and touching...
    Regina :smile:

    his bridge is on the Old Donner Pass Highway.
    It has a spectacular view of Donner Lake and Donner Pass on Route 80.

    A bear was walking across Rainbow Bridge (Old Hwy 40 at Donner Summit,
    Truckee) 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 s ound 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.

    There is a moral to this story you know; this old bear made a wrong move and found he was hanging by his nails. Somehow he was able to pull himself up onto the ledge where he saw he was in a very bad, impossible situation and what did he do? Yep, he took a nap and sure enough the situation took care of itself while he was asleep.
    The moral is that when confronted with a bad situation sometimes the best solution is to take a nap...
