Bear Falls From Tree

on April 29, 2012

zorbear, this one’s for you. But don’t worry, the bear wasn’t hurt.

A black bear was tranquilized after it wandered onto the University of Colorado campus in Boulder.

The 200-pound animal was spotted near university housing on April 26. One woman said it brushed past her as she was putting money into a parking meter.

CU Independent photographer Andy Duann captured the astonishing images of the bear falling from the brush onto a pad that workers had positioned beneath the tree to ensure the animal had a soft landing spot.

    When I saw the photo I thought the bear had learned how to levitate…

      That would have been really cool. What I thought when I first saw it was “Wow! This bear is really good on the trampoline!”

    Bad news: the bear died in a car crash… (sigh)

    • Zorba says:

      Oh, no! Poor bear! The problem seems to have been that the bear was not afraid of “people.” Too used to getting food in town, and much less likely to stay “out” in the wild.

      • zorbear says:

        Well, I’m not afraid of people, and I get my food in my house, not on the streets where cars can run over you. That bear should have stayed at home and let his parents make him mac & cheese (with honey, of course)!

    Yes, but you’re not a wild bear, zorbear, sweetie. You’re a very civilized bear. šŸ˜‰
    For your larger cousins in the wild, it can get dangerous for them if they get too used to people, and getting their food in towns.
