Two men experienced a real ordeal during a regular fishing trip when they spotted two strange shapes in the water, writes ilovemydogsomuch. When they got closer, they discovered that the two shapes were actually two bears trying to swim. The fishermen were immediately alerted. The water was freezing. Their first instinct was to rescue the baby bears. No doubt. But it wasn’t that simple. They had to be sure they weren’t in danger. The cubs had a mother, and mother bears are very protective.
The two men searched for the mother in the water. When they approached the babies, they found nothing. They could not see the mother anywhere. Had the babies been abandoned? But then, out of the corner of his eye, one of the men noticed a large bear on the shore watching the cubs. It must have been their mother!
The fishermen were indecisive. They were tempted to save the children, but they also knew the risks. Did the mother watch anxiously and encourage the men, or was she ready to strike if the men stepped in? The men decided to do everything they could to save the children despite the risk, and they approached with their boat.
There was no time to waste! The water was too cold and the bears were too small to get out on their own. Then one of the cubs got really close to the boat to stick its determined paws over the side. It clung to the boat with its mouth and tried to pull itself up. He tried with all his might to save himself, but kept sliding backwards into the water.
The two men were aware that they had to help him alone, but they feared the cub would rebel and bite them if they grabbed him. They had to find a way to get the first youngster back in the boat and then try to rescue the second youngster. Eventually, they had to reunite the cubs with their mother once they had landed. It was a big job. Will they succeed?
