Bear Necessities

I suppose Shirley and Tom Schenk couldn’t “bear” it after listening all night to the cries of trapped baby bear cubs. The next morning, the couple from Ruidoso, New Mexico, set out a plan to rescue the three cubs, who’d become stuck in a dumpster with no way to climb out. This video, posted two weeks ago and already with over half a million views, shows Tom backing up the pick-up truck so Shirley can install a ladder. Presto, up pop three sweet furry faces! Come on, you know you want to see it

“Bear with me… help is on the way!” (Sorry, these puns are clearly getting out of control…)
