Black Bear Rescued From California Bridge

, ,

The bear was walking across the 80ft (24.38 meters) high bridge on Highway 40 near Donner Summit in the Sierra Nevada when the closeness of two oncoming cars spooked it, causing it to jump over the railing. Falling, it managed to grab on to a ledge and pull itself onto a concrete girder beneath the bridge. Local volunteers tranquilized and rescued the stranded bear.
