Bear Clinging to Bridge Rescued

Daily Mail has a really neat article about the rescue of a bear that got stuck clinging to a bridge:

The Bruin bear was crossing Rainbow Bridge on Highway 40 near Truckee when he jumped out of the way of two approaching vehicles.

He ended up clinging to a ledge - for almost 24 hours.

His rescuers strung the net underneath the 80-year-old bridge before an animal control officer shot the bear with a tranquilizer dart.

After the animal lost consciousness, volunteers used a pole to push it into the net, then lowered the bear onto the floor of the ravine.
