The Mask (Laughing)

Holy Bouncing Bears, Batman!

MISSOULA, MONTANA - A bear's stint in a tree in the city of Missoula, Montana came to a crashing close after keeping fish and wildlife experts at bay for the better part of a day. Finally a wildlife official armed with a tranquilizer gun climbed into a fire truck basket, was hoisted up toward the bear, and shot the bear. The bear, groggy with tranquilizer fell out of the tree, right onto a trampoline that was set up on the lawn. The bear catapulted back up into the air and then crashed head first onto the ground. When a fish and wildlife worker carried the bear away from the crowd, the animal checked out fine. The bear was later released in a wilderness area.

Now, that alone sounds damn funy. Wanna REALLY laugh your ass off? There's a video of it here.
