article imageBear outside a window startles woman and gets startled itself

By Aaron Robson     Feb 12, 2007 in Environment
The last thing Lorraine Grossman expected to see as she gazed out the kitchen window of her daughter's home was a 211-pound bear.
"I was making a pot of coffee, and I turned around and there he was in the window looking at me," said Grossman. "For a minute I didn't realize there was a glass between him and me."
The scream Grossman let out was loud enough to startle the wandering bear, who turned tail and scurried some 40 feet up a tree.
The bear had remained wedged inbetween a large web of branches until it was shot with a tranquilizer dart on Sunday. The bear then hung on to the branches for 10 minutes before dropping into a taut net set up below.
The bear was a male. It was estimated to be 2 or 3 years old, was released at a state wildlife-management area.
