I just had to post this picture of a tranquilzed bear falling out of the tree in which he was perched when discovered by residents.

I love this!

Not sure I'd be standing that close waiting for him to hit the ground

They probably used an air mat to catch the bear. I saw animal control do this when I was 12. Great pic.

I think this is an oldie, but the first time I heard it...

I was BU, batter checks his swing, dugout skipper is saying "ask him" (him = me) my partner comes to me and I signal "no he didn't go"

Defensive Skipper hollars from the dugout, "if he would've hit it, it would've been a double" I grinned and laughed later, that was a good one!

BTW, no way he went.
I'm not where I need to be, but not where I used to be.

i believe i have seen s video of this bear and it landed on a trampoline and bounced a good 15 feet before finally making contact with the not so soft ground. very funny because the bear was ok.

Yeah, and if he got all of it it would need a stewardess.
