How to rescue a trio of bear cubs using a ladder, a truck, and a couple willing volunteers

Bears are smart. Like, a lot smarter than most people give them credit for. But that doesn't mean they don't still make mistakes — say, winding up trapped inside a massive trash can, for instance. Fear not, wee ursine triplets! Here come some daring humans to the rescue!


I've watched this a number of times now, and there are a couple things still really blow me away. One: Who the hell approaches bear cubs when the mother is clearly RIGHT THERE? Sure, that helpful human is in the bed of a truck, but something tells me that wouldn't make a whole lot of difference if mom was in a defensive sort of mood (as new moms are wont to be). Two: those are some damn crafty little bear cubs... nimble buggers, too. You think a human child could ladder its way out of a dumpster like that? Yeah, right.

"Who the hell approaches bear cubs when the mother is clearly RIGHT THERE? "

I saw this posted elsewhere and it sounds like the mama bear gets into this dumpster quite a bit and that this isn't the first time these people have helped them out. Maybe they're just used to it and know the people are helping?
