Here I come, to save the day!

So, Andy jumps in (as in dux ex machina) and saves the day by scaring away Millie the attacking bear. Yesterday we saw Jeb tripping over the proverbial tree root while chased by the bear. Was this a one-off? Oh, no!

Even Mark has had his share of run-ins with bears and tripping. From May 13, 2014 we see Mark demonstrating the technique. In fact, through April and May 2014 Mark seemed to experience one fall after another, trying to escape this bad news bear. Wish I had found find this strip yesterday.
