Pet Raccoons

12:44 a.m. A border patrol agent hit a bear with his truck. The injured bear then climbed into a tree but it apparently wasn’t doing too well. The agent called 911 because he wasn’t sure what to do about the situation. A Montana Highway Patrol officer showed up with a shotgun to put the bear out of its misery, but the shotgun got jammed, so the sheriff’s office was called and asked to respond with a working shotgun. By the time the sheriff’s deputy showed up, the bear had crawled out of the tree and limped into the woods, hopefully to a speedy recovery.
