Nice!

Though round my way, the cliche was firemen using ladders to save stuck kittens.

Proof that not all cops are jerks. Kudos to the Tahoe PD.

Get a bear-proof dumpster, they said. It’ll fix the problem, they said.

Well, in a way, it was bear-proof. Just not in the way you would expect. The cub couldn’t get out rather than not getting in.

With so much inappropriate wildlife touching videos out there, its kind of refreshing to see humans approaching bears with appropriate respect.

Cops and bears have a longstanding bond. Just look at the Village People.

“No”, he told his fellow bears later, “It was not a miracle. God did not save me. He merely provided a ladder so I could save myself.”

Save cubs from dumpsters with this one weird trick. Trash collectors hate him!

Go camping sometime, and bring smelly food like peanut butter or pepperoni. Then watch as they figure out how to make your “bear hang” (that you spent a half hour putting up) completely useless.

That’s a classic clickbait thread title, by the way. :slight_smile:

That’s a big 10-4, good buddy… looks like that pappa bear rescued one of his own, did a flip, jumped in his gumball machine and put the hammer down and got out of that nap trap…

(sorry, been listening to too much CW McCall…)

Yogi: Hey, Boo Boo, let’s check out that dumpster.
Boo Boo: OK, Yogi. Give me a boost…
Yogi: Sure thing, Boo Boo. Let me know if you see a pic-a-nic basket inside!
[Thumping noise as Boo Boo falls in]
Boo Boo: Aw, Yogi…this thing is empty.
Boo Boo: Yogi?
Boo Boo: Yogi, I can’t get out! Yogi, help!
[Lid of dumpster opens, ladder appears over the edge. Boo Boo emerges, and sees the cops.]
Boo Boo: Ranger Smith, dat you? You know I’m underage, right? I’ll just be going now, to catch up with Yogi. [mutters to himself] Smarter than the average bear…:bear:

I was going to say “Worst. Pic-a-nic basket. EVER”, but you got the Yogi Bear reference in before me. :smiley:

I’m not sure what I just watched, but I watched all 14 minutes of it. Thanks.

There is no need whatsoever to apologize for listening to CW McCall.
Also, isn’t too much CW McCall something like too much chocolate? (No such thing!)
