Bear Climbs Electric Pole & Gets Stuck in Wires

A video of a bear climbed up on an electric pole and got tangled in power pole wires in Arizona has gone viral.
ABC News reported that Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative, a utility company based in the southern Arizona city of Willcox, was notified about the bear, prompting rescue efforts.
The utility workers immediately disabled the power so the bear would not get electrocuted. They then tried to persuade the bear to come down and even nudged him with a fiberglass stick. Initially, the bear bit and grabbed the stick, but eventually went down on its own.
“Alright, little bear. Time to get off this pole.”
After being called to the scene, utility workers immediately cut the power and then helped coax this bear off a power pole in Arizona. The bear eventually climbed down safely and ran off into the desert. https://t.co/N3YkuSiGgg pic.twitter.com/FJSe51UEXD
