Bear Rescue Mission
We already brought you some good news about bears last week, but this story was too cute to leave out. In the video below, three baby bears are stuck in a dumpster. A woman standing in the bed of a pickup truck places a ladder into the dumpster so the cubs can climb out to safety. In the meantime, a distraught mama bear watches from behind a tree. Let's hear it for some human courage. The woman never got out of the truck, but she did get frighteningly close to some emotionally compromised bears.
Although it's still unclear why that dumpster was in the middle of the woods in the first place.
