Bear on a wire: not a circus act

Written by on May 30, 2014 in Rare Critters - No comments

A black bear in Saskatchewan picked an unusual place for a power nap. Crews with SaskPower, Saskatchewan’s public utility, recently came upon the critter snoozing atop a utility pole, near Shellbrook. This week, the company posted this – and some incredible photos – on Facebook:

“It’s a bird … it’s a plane … it’s a lineman … wait, it’s a bear! This furry guy scurried up a pole near Shellbrook on May 23, 2014, and took a power nap at the top. Our crews were worried about getting the bear down without harming it and without causing a power outage, but the bear came down safely on its own after it was done resting.”
