The animal control folks would have needed a tranquillizer gun, a swat team and a helicopter and three days of attempts before they would eventually shoot all four bears to ensure public safety.

Wow, that's pretty amazing. Dude risked his life for those bear cubs.
 
2012-07-25 08:04:03 PM
Awesome. Some pretty clever people around...
 
2012-07-25 08:18:38 PM
That was ingenious. Instead of the risk of handling the cubs, they gave a way for the cubs to rejoin their mother on their own (more or less). I can think of a lot more riskier ways of saving those cubs.
 
2012-07-25 08:43:15 PM
When all the cub heads popped up right after they threw in the ladder I started giggling. I'm such a little girl.
 
2012-07-25 08:58:17 PM
Very ingenious.

Yes, the English language is weird.

That was pretty damn clever. I don't know if I would have thought to do that. Good on them for helping the cubs, and good on mama bear for not going after the car as it backed up toward her and the dumpster.
 
2012-07-25 10:44:47 PM
For right off the cuff thinking... a very good move.
 
2012-07-25 11:15:21 PM
And they all lived happily ever after.

Clearly this is a job for the free market!

Wow... That's some damn clever thinking right there.

Also insanely risky. The mother bear could have been on the back of that truck and latched onto his neck in a second if she wanted to.
 
2012-07-26 12:01:24 AM
Pretty clever. The truck allows for a quick getaway if Mom gets mad.
 
2012-07-26 12:05:23 AM
It's a shame to throw away a perfectly good ladder like that.

Well, I'm not so sure. Looked like a black bear to me, and they're pretty fearful of humans -- or really, anything or anyone who stands up to them, including angry cats. Not that a prudent person should test this theory -- there are always exceptions, and any freaked-out animal might turn on you. But generally speaking, black bears are easier to deal with. We get them around here, and they mostly avoid people and usually aren't too hard to scare away. The bear in this case likely didn't see two humans in a truck, but a huge growling thing approaching without showing any hesitation or fear. I also feel sure they were ready to book it out of there in a hurry if things turned sour.

It was a black bear, and if you watch you'll note the mom runs a good ten yards away when the truck backs up to the dumpster.

Came here to mention this. Black bears aren't all that large, relatively speaking, and can be intimidated.

Pretty f'n cool. Amazing. K.I.S.S.

Nuff said.

Not to start some kind of ITG/go make me a sammitch shiat or anything, but.......that kinda looked like a lady in the back of the truck. That was my original thought, anyway, until everyone in here was like, "GOSH THAT GUY IS SO AWESOME."
 
2012-07-26 01:10:41 AM
Just sayin'.
 
2012-07-26 01:25:16 AM
I've been encouraging black and brown bears to attack me for over two decades.

Haven't had any takers yet.

yup. Pink shirt, long blonde hair, and very low resolution breasts.

She had three cubs. That is unusual.

Oh, SpikeStrip. In-genius is when you're MORE than genius. The people in this video, they're not just genius, they're IN-genius.

I did this for three small raccoons that were in a dumpster, using a wooden shipping pallet that was sitting there.

No huge mama raccoon present, but I didn't use a truck either, just walked away. Half hour later, no sign of them.

Did fall on my butt when I first approached and the three snarled and jumped towards me from the back of the dumpster
 
2012-07-26 03:11:37 AM
Good idea. At first I thought they were going to knock the dumpster over somehow. This solution was way better.
 
2012-07-26 03:12:42 AM
The last time I saw someone go to this length to help out some cubs it was when Sandusky donated money to his lock Cub Scout pack.

Whenever I see something like this, I wonder if the animal has the mental capacity to equate that something the humans did helped them out.

Would you say they have.. a plethora of genius?
 
2012-07-26 06:34:56 AM
Good for those people and the bears. Glad it worked out well. But, if they don't secure or remove that dumpster, it WILL happen again. Next time helpful, rational humans probably won't be there.
 
2012-07-26 07:41:59 AM
the momma bear's "what the fark just happened" response was awesome, if it happens again someone could probably just walk up with the ladder and stick it in.

LOL

i did the same thing with a raccoon once. he was trapped in a dumpster, so i put some wood in so he could crawl out. live free brother!

Black bears will occasionally squeeze out an extra cub or two to pad the welfare checks...

That was hilariously efficient, and an almost perfectly edited web video. I wish they would have cut the dialog after "Yay!"

The ladder person is female. The driver is male. There's a passenger and possibly another male off camera, outside the truck. And possibly others without speaking parts.
