VIDEO: How To Handle A Bear

A one-minute video with a plot twist.

Bears. Ladders. Battlestar Galactica.

Okay, just kidding about that last one. But I will tell you that this one minute long video will make your day. I promise. No, watch it first.


There, I told you so.

When three bear cubs got stuck in a dumpster, New Mexico resident Shirley Schenk came to the rescue with her ladder. In the video, you see someone drive up with Schenk in the back with a long yellow ladder. She puts the ladder in the dumpster and drives away, and three small heads pop out. Eventually they get the idea and they rejoin their worried mother and trot off into the forest.

“(The mother bear) was just talking to them,” said Schenk, she said in an interview with ABC News. “You could tell, it was just ‘I know, I want to get you out but I don’t know how to get you out.”
