Falling Bear Lands On Police Cruiser, Sets It On Fire

It’s important to be bear aware. There are black bears and grizzly bears and if you’re lucky there might be panda bears. A Humboldt County Sheriff recently discovered a new type of bear: falling bear. While responding to a call of a drug overdose, a sheriff's police cruiser was struck by a falling bear. The impact destroyed the windshield, causing the cruiser to drive into an embankment and then roll over, which set it on fire. The fire started from the car then spread to the surrounding area, causing a small forest fire which was contained to 2,000 sq meters.

Everyone was fine! Even the bear. Somehow.

However, one can’t help but speculate what caused a typical run of the mill bear to decide it wanted to become a falling bear. Perhaps there was a cougar nearby, and the bear wished to impress the feline with its parkour. We will likely never know, but one thing is for certain, we will keep our eyes peeled for falling bears from now on.

Panorama Resort to Offer Canada’s Cheapest Cat-Skiing

It might not be the biggest snowcat, but it sure does look snazzy. Panorama photo. Panorama Mountain Resort, located in southeastern British Columbia, nearly has more double-black trails than greens, blues, and blacks put together. As such, it should come as no surprise that they are also planning on operating an inbounds snowcat called "Monster X" to access far-flung, though fully avalanche-controlled zones in Taynton Bowl, located in the northern, AKA upper-left portion of the mountain.
