Bearly survives

This bridge is on the Old Donner Pass Highway .

It has a spectacular view of   Donner   Lake and   Donner Pass on Route 80.

A bear was walking across Rainbow Bridge (Old Hwy 40) at Donner Summit,

Truckee ) on Saturday 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, above) and pulled itself to safety. Authorities decided

that nothing could be done to help Saturday night so they returned Sunday

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, lowered, then woke up and walked out of the net.

There is a moral to this story you know.

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
