Bear follies: Check out the bear trapped high under a bridge!

It’s incredible this bear got into this position at all instead of falling 50 feet to the rocks below.    This is the very scenic Rainbow Bridge in Donner Pass outside Truckee in North Lake Tahoe.    It was walking along the bridge when a car spooked over the railing, which overhangs the concrete arch it from which it’s hanging.

Authorities arrived late in the day and had to wait till next morning to string a net, tranquilize the bear, and lower it to the ground.
