Silly little bear you are not a pair of dirty socks. Silly little bear, get out of that whirlpool.

Silly little bear.

Those were the most inept drowning bear rescuers and cameramen I have ever seen.

I'm beginning to think that cell phone videography classes should be mandatory in public schools. As should bear river-rescue.

Oh thank God it wasn't just me who heard that. I can't stop laughing at work, tearing up trying to keep silent.

I would so f**ck that bear cub.

If I were a bear, I'd probably prefer to live closer to natural hot springs. Those rivers are cold.

I would've used the net handle to hold it underwater.

Ok I like that they helped the bear cub but Baby Jebus did I get pissed at the inept camera work. Cell phones shouldn't have movie capabilities unless they auto rotate to correct aspect. If the camera had been filming at the correct viewing angle we might have actually seen something cool instead of just hearing the poor cub panic.

Caterday comes and goes each week, but seldom is the Bear Day observed by the masses of Fark.

SO what the hell happened to the bear?

Soooo... Bear cubs drowning in a river sound like Howard Wolowitz's mother after a pack of Morley's and the phone is ringing.

The guy who filmed it has vertical eyes, a verticle high screen monitor and a verticle high screen tv. I assume that is the case with everyone who records videos this way.

Kaka: SO what the hell happened to the bear?


The story has a happy ending as the cub was later caught, slaughtered and turned into bear jerky. Delicious, yummy, bear jerky.

Good jorb guys! Now he's little and cute and only murders with cuteness; when he grows up, he'll be a godless killing machine and will murder with his snout, claws or paws.

/ I'm glad they saved the damn bear; even though he'll turn into a godless killing machine

At first I thought someone on the boat was just yelling "Bear" over and over again. I must be sick in the head because I can't stop laughing about this. Especially the part where it starts getting some water in its mouth.

BEAR! BEAR! BEARGGHRLE!

That was a terrible video. This is the second shiatty vertical video I've seen this week..wtf. The first one was of some dude frying to death on an NYC subway track. Pretty disturbing.

I kept thinking in the beginning why does the old marlboro smokin alcoholic on the boat keep yelling "bear, bear, bear" ......like he thinks that will make it swim closer to the boat? wtf?

Then when I was realizing it was the bear I started crackin up!

I figured the bear would be saved so that next year, when it's grown up, it can kill and eat the fishermen who saved its life.
 
2012-08-03 02:55:27 PM
Sadly the mother rejected the cub due to the human scent it was covered in and the cub died a slow painful death by starvation.

if you can scream you aren't tired. or as the cops say if you can speak and say the choke hold is too tight it isn't too tight.
