Video from Fort Fairfield, Maine shows us something you normally don't see everyday, or even once in a lifetime. It's a black bear in a tree!

Yes, it looks like this bear actually climbed a tree to escape the rising floodwaters in Northern Maine. Now that we're in the spring thaw, rivers and waterways are rising up and flowing fast. If you're a bear, what do you do to get away? How about climb!

The video actually looks pretty funny... can you imagine a 500+ pound bear climbing a tree? I guess it actually happens!
