Animals may be incredibly curious and naughty, and their urge to explore leads them to dangerous situations where their lives may be jeopardized. This is the story of a naughty black bear who wound up on a power pole near Wilcox, Arizona.
Fortunately, he was noticed in time by a power company employee, who swiftly called his managers to provide the bear with all the assistance he need.
Warner Newbauer and an apprentice from Sulfur Springs Valley Electric Co-op were dispatched to save the terrified animal that had become entangled in high voltage lines.
When the rescuers arrived on the site, the first thing they did was turn off the electricity, and then they devised a plan to release the bear. The bear had already dispersed a gathering of spectators when it came down from the first pole, according to reports shared on social media
The public servants approached the bear from the truck’s basket with extreme caution. Warner wrote in this regard:
“When we arrived, we discovered that the bear was in a perilous predicament and might be electrocuted at any time.” A massive 7200 volt load is responsible for the lines around the bear’s head. “I would have killed him quickly if I had touched one of those.”
Fortunately, his rescuers utilized the greatest techniques to release him. Warner spoke to the bear from a meter and a half away, and he also used an eight-foot-long fiberglass pole to urge him to go.
“The bear was staring at us from the top of the pole while we were riding our bucket truck, but when I started moving towards him in the bucket, he covered his eyes with his front leg as if he was trying to hide.” When I got within a meter and a half of him, I started chatting to him, and he glanced at me.” Warner added his thoughts.
Warner eventually got the bear in a better position and persuaded it to come down on its own. Finally, the bear descended and returned to its natural home.
According to police, this is not the first time a bear has become entangled in Arizona’s electrical equipment; others have been injured by automobiles. We’re relieved to learn that this bear was saved in time and had the joyful ending it deserved.
