Bear Chases Ranger After Being Shot With A Dart
A wildlife park ranger who shot a marauding bear with a tranquiliser gun had the scare of his life, when the animal suddenly awoke as he approached, and proceeded to attack him, reports The Telegraph, London.
The female bear was injected with a sleep-inducing drug after it appeared near the village of Chorzow in Poland.
Unfortunately for the rangers tasked with capturing the animal, it woke up from its apparent slumber as they came near and gave chase to the man who had shot it.
Thanks to the efforts of both men, the bear was eventually brought under control. Reports said authorities plan to take it to a local zoo.
The same bear had reportedly been released in a nearby wood three weeks ago, after it was captured near a school in Przemysl.
The bear had broken free from a Ukranian wildlife park 25 miles away.
