Bears are dangerous animals and we know better than to get too close.
Despite this, they are still live creatures who deserve our utmost respect. Likewise, if one were ever to be in trouble, we must help.
A black bear come a little too close to one couple. But when they got into the car and looked back at the bear, what they saw made them run out of their car and straight towards him.
Bears are extremely impressive animals and live graciously in their natural habitats. We must always remember that the forest is their territory, and if we get too close, they can attack. Dean and Samantha were well aware of this, so when they encountered a black bear one day while on a walk, they quickly headed back to the safety of their car.
Once secure in their car, they looked back and noticed that something seemed off with the bear. It wasn't walking straight, swaying back and forth.
The bear got a bit closer to them - and that's when they could see what was wrong.
The black bear had somehow ended up with what appeared to be an old bucket stuck over its head. It was desperately trying to shrug it off - with no luck.
That's when the couple decided to intervene.
They tried to approach the bear, but he ran away from them, distressed.
They finally managed to catch up and hold the bear down, and began to cut the bucket with a saw.
Luckily, the bear was not a huge adult just yet, and that made the deed easier. After several minutes of work, they managed to saw the bucket off the bear's head. Finally free, the bear quickly rushed back into the forest.
Dean and Samantha, along with other passerbys, stood and watched as the bear ran away.
I can only imagine how satisfied that must have felt - to know you played a part in rescuing an innocent animal. For me, this couple's intervention is nothing short of heroic!
