With the onset of summer and depletion of water sources in the forests, wild animals have started straying into human habitations in search of food and water to quench their hunger and thirst pangs. However, unbeknownst to them, danger lurks at every corner -- not only human threat but also man-made hazards.


Two wild bears – one female and a male – that had strayed into a farm in Yarehalli village in Ramanagaram district of Karnataka state in India, found themselves in such a predicament when they fell into a dry well and had to be rescued by the forest department officials.


“The two bears which had strayed from their natural habitat on February 16 and had accidentally fallen into 9 metres (30 feet) deep dry well,” said Dr. Umashankar, a veterinarian with the forest department.


The incident came to light at 3 am on February 17 when the villagers heard grunting noises from the well and found two adult bears inside. They then informed the forest department officials who came and assessed the situation, after which took a decision to tranquilize the bears before bringing them out.


The rescue operation took about three hours as the bears had to be tranquilized and then lifted out of the well using thick nets.


While the female bear was lifted out without any hitch, the sedated male bear slipped back into the well. And, in the next attempt was taken out safely.


The local villagers assisted the forest department staff in the rescue mission. The rescued bears were then moved to Bannerghatta Wildlife Sanctuary.


“The wild animals are facing water scarcity in their habitat as the rivulets and waterholes are drying up. As such, they are moving towards human settlements. In the last four months, 8 leopards were rescued, while 4 bears have been rescued in last two months and have been taken to Bannerghatta Wildlife Sanctuary,” said Dr. Umashankar.

  2. Mellowed by this profound knowledge of letting go, middle-aged love is less arrogant,more abject and more philosophical. Unlike in the first flush of youth when love is at the very first sight and its demise is at the very first slight, love, if it at all happens at this age, is rather with a philosophical construct, than with a person.

  3. This was dinner tonight at our house... I am too tired some days to come up with fantastic or extravagant meal ideas, plus the kids don't eat my best meals anyways. Tonight I wanted them to get some good calories so I added sausage to the recipe. It's delicious and hearty and best of all, it's super easy.
    Geesh, what an ego on this one. Sure hope he and those other Founding Fathers can put in a few clauses about women’s independence in all those documents they’re fighting about because being unable to own property or vote, and precluded by sex from 98 percent of jobs in the Colonies is really slowing down my game. I’d dump this jerk in a heartbeat if I had more options.
