Saving a bear

A bear was walking across Rainbow Bridge (Old Highway 40) at Donner Summit, when two cars also crossing the bridge scared the bear into jumping over the edge of the bridge, Somehow the bear caught the ledge (see unbelievable photo, below) and pulled itself to safety.


Authorities decided that nothing could be done to help that night so they returned the next 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, and lowered,


then woke up and walked out of the net.


There is a moral to this story.
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 ~ Take a nap :D
