BOUNCING BC BLACK BEARS

We’ve heard about bears getting into food and rubbish, but who knew they also like bouncing on trampolines?

Rose Waldron, of Coquitlam, was stunned to see the bears wrestling out back on the trampoline.

Her video shows the bears having some fun.

“So much for that trampoline,” Waldron says in the video.

Her husband, Doug Waldron, said the bears broke the trampoline’s support rods.

“It’s good enough for somebody [weighing] 150 pounds or less, I’m sure,” Waldron told CBCNews. “But having 800 pounds of bear on your trampoline didn’t help things.”

“There’s a lot of people who would say what goes around, comes around — karma. I did not think that; the only thing I got (was) really sad because he had died,” Hernandez said, according to reports. “Now granted, he had hurt me, but the Lord saw fit to take him out of his misery from him.”

Hernandez did not have any significant injuries, but doesn’t have her car anymore and needs it to work.

San Antonio residents created to GoFundMe page to help Hernandez buy a replacement vehicle. The page had aimed to raise $5,000 (US), but had earned over $30,000 by Saturday night.
