Black bear loves to play tetherball

We may have found the world's best tetherball player.

Well, at least the best among the ursine variety.

This is L.G. (short for Little Guy), a bear who was found abandoned near Lake Tahoe, Nev. When he was found, L.G. weighed just 14 pounds. He should have weighed between 60 and 100 pounds.

After being rescued, L.G. was given a permanent home at Animal Ark, a Reno-based wildlife sanctuary. And that's where L.G. discovered tetherball.

Being an avid fan of tetherball (not really), I'm pretty sure that L.G. could take down Napoleon Dynamite.
