    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 and was able to pull 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.

    I wonder if Bears have 9 lives? If they do, that bear used one of them up when it jumped over the side.....

    Great to see that it was able to be rescued, cause after that ordeal, it deserved it:D
