To Our Arnold Friends On Bear Incident In Arnold This Morning

Arnold, CA....This morning a big bear was struck on Hwy 4 about 200 yards into the passing lane before Arnold. The bear rolled into a ravine on the north side. We watched her for a while and she recovered. Then we heard something like goats from the south side of Hwy 4. There were 2 cubs treed. With the help of my neighbors, we shut down the Hwy for perhaps 90 seconds and reunited the family. I want to thank people for caring ..Doug Dryer

              Great story with a better ending! If only I didn't have to read through the stupid and idiotic comments before getting to the couple of positive ones. Thanks for posting PineTree.

      You mean, "lit flares and put them out by dry brush". Awesome. But hey, Yogie was saved and reunited with her pups. That's what counts.

      Quit being a hater. . .

    She walked out of the ravine after roughly 45 minutes. She had a limp. Now I have an angry momma bear in my backyard.

THANK YOU for posting the article. We witnessed the incident coming down highway 4 and it was heart breaking!! We reported it to the Ranger Station and we all wondered how the bear was doing. My kids were in tears yesterday but are all smiles thanks to your post.

    Excellent team work in the community.
    I am glad your kids got to learn a positive lesson here.
    Sometimes a little help will save a bear family.
    I am always on alert for mama's and babies this time of year.
    The drought has brought them closer.
    I hope they are ok and will survive as a bear family.
    I love living on Highway 4...so many great people here.
    good hearted too.

      sadly, an injured bear is a dead bear, and her cubs will be too before too long. They just cannot feed themselves.

              Fish and game would have handled it properly or perhaps they did.. Let's hope a home owner doesn't get in her way, might screw up their bar b q.

            By all means, we need to show and tell children everything we can think of that is ugly and evil in this world. There is no reason they should spend any of their life in innocence. That might let them grow up to be caring adults and you know what we call those people: Democrats. If those bears live, the Tea Party is the true victim. We in the Tea Party are victims of government and of bleeding heart liberals who want to think an injured bear will live and care for her cubs.

            Wake up, people. Compassion drives out hate. Don't fall victim to soft and fuzzy bear stories planted by those who would destroy our great country where Davy Crockett killed him a bar' when he was only 3.
