A Bear Got Trapped Under A Bridge With No Way To Escape. How They Saved His Life Is Brilliant.

This wild animal rescue is one that you’ll have to see to believe! A bear was walking across a highway bridge in California when he got scared by traffic. He crawled over top of the concrete railing and got stuck under the bridge arc. With no way to climb back up or crawl down, the bear was stuck. And with a 100 foot drop to the rocks below, the bear’s life was in danger.

Animal control arrived and were afraid that the bear was going to fall. They could see him making several attempts to crawl down the bridge!

They knew they needed something special to rescue the bear. They went especially to Nevada and got a large nylon net. Several rock climbers and tree service employees joined in to help, bringing ropes and pulleys.

They positioned the net beneath the bridge and then tranquilized the bear. Shortly after, the bear fell unconscious and an officer lowered himself down to the bear and gently pushed the 250-pound bear into the net. About a dozen people pulled the bear back up to safety.

They took him to a shaded area where he gradually woke up and headed back into the wilderness.
