A mother bear and her three cubs were caught in a bit of predicament after the youngsters decided to go dumpster-diving and were unable to climb out of the bin.
Thankfully, Schenk and her husband Tom heard the bears crying through the night just outside their home in Ruidoso, N.M. The next morning they came to the rescue, armed with a ladder… and a pickup truck.
In the video below, we can see Tom backing the truck up to the dumpster and Shirley lowering the ladder into the dumpster. Seconds later the cubs climb out to their relieved mother.
Oh my… the things children do. Thank God Tom and his wife were there to help!
