Right This Minute: Bear performs tight rope act

ALBERTA, Canada - A wild black bear climbed a tree to try and get some food hanging from a rope tied between two trees in Alberta, Canada.

The bear used her claws and teeth to slide across the rope toward the food. After struggling for almost two minutes, the bear eventually fell without the food but wasn’t injured.

Pat Garrett caught this amazing scene on camera. He says he puts out food for the mother bears and their cubs, who are hungry after hibernating all winter. The bear did come back and eventually got the food.
