Bear gets stuck on Arizona utility pole, video shows

Utility company Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative (SSVEC) was notified Monday morning that the bear was trapped in power lines on the outskirts of Willcox, about 80 miles east of Tucson.

Werner Neubauer, a company lineman, said he and his apprentice lineman rushed to disable the power so the animal wouldn’t get electrocuted, FOX 10 of Phoenix reported.
