    Default Amazing rescue of the bear who jumped off a bridge

    The "bare necessities of life" included a net and a pole from an army surplus store after a bear was stranded on the ledge of a bridge over a ravine in California.



    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. Scroll down for more ...
    Hang on: The bear clings to the ledge (above and below) after jumping clear of vehicles






    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. Scroll down for more ...
    Soft landing: The bear is cradled in the nylon net secured under the bridge






    More than 100 spectators cheered the sleepy-headed bear when he picked himself up and wandered off.
    Cheers: The bemused bear is cheered by spectators as he wanders off after the rescue

    So funny, Rainbow Bridge is a common term for where our furbabies go when they die.

    So sweet! Great pics.
