Is That Really How They Wanted This to Happen? Tranquilized Bear Falls From Tree, Goes Right Through Tarp
Fish & Game News April 17, 2014 Elliott
A Florida fire department tried to take precautions before tranquilizing a black bear in a neighborhood tree, in order to relocate it to a safer environment.
Before the state’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission tranquilized the bear 350-pound bear, which climbed a Panama City city tree Sunday night, the fire department rigged a set of tarps to catch it.
Unfortunately, things didn’t seem to go quite as planned.
Instead of cushioning the bear’s fall, the animal went right through the tarps when it fell from the tree.
