WFN's Top Catches - The Uninvited Bear, Speared in the Head, Barehanded Tiger Bassin'
It’s hot outside, and you know what that means! That’s right, it’s time for another awe-inspiring instalment of WFN’s Top Catches!
This story proves why, when getting married, that majority of people out there opt for a traditional venue. A young couple was recently tying the knot at Denver’s Ridgway State Park when an unexpected visitor showed up – a 300-lb bear. As the couple and their guests were getting ready to have their dinner and reception underneath a pavilion, the massive creature made its way across the river towards the festivities. Luckily, a park ranger was a guest at the wedding, and after calling in some backup, the bear was diverted. Rumors that it simply wanted a piece of cake have not been confirmed.
The Naughty Octopus
A large percentage of people have probably dealt with unwanted advances from a member of the opposite sex, but this bottlenose dolphin’s tale is head and shoulders above the rest. Some recently published photos of the aforementioned dolphin jumping out of the water off the coast of western Greece show an octopus attached to the mammal’s…well, nether regions. The researchers who took the photos hypothesize that the dolphin attempted to consume the octopus, which got its revenge by attaching itself to the dolphin’s body. Eventually, the dolphin was able to free itself of the tentacled creature.
He Got The Point
This story gives new meaning to the phrase “spearheading a project.” A 16-year old Florida boy was recently accidentally shot in the head with a spear gun by his friend. Incredibly, after falling unconscious briefly, he woke up. Yes, you read that right: the boy SURVIVED. The spear entered his head an inch above his right eye. When it came to stop, the tip was protruding out the back of his head, and three feet of spear jutted out from his forehead. Doctors were forced to perform surgery, and the boy is now in serious condition. Barring any setbacks, he is expected to recover, although he may have limited mobility on the left side of his body.
A New Method for Catching Bass
This is probably not the first time it’s ever been done, but this video of an angler catching a tiger bass with his bare hand is nothing short of impressive!
