Man Saves A Bear From Drowning

7 posts in this topic

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1N85MiTQ-N0gsI3XBCCYbw?sub_confirmation=1.                                       Man Saves A 375 Pound Black Bear From Drowning.
When a huge black bear wandered into a residential area in Alligator Point, Florida, wildlife officers knew they had to trap and remove him from the neighborhood. But when they tried to sedate the bear, things started to go horribly wrong.
The safest way to remove the bear from the residential area was by tranquilizing and relocating him.
That's when Adam Warwick, a biologist with the Wildlife Commission, knew he had to act.
"It was a spur of the moment decision. I had a lot of adrenaline pumping when I saw the bear in the water." 
He forgot that the 7 foot beast could tear him apart with his claws. The bear tried lunging at Adam to climb on top of him and stay afloat, but he was losing the ability to move his legs.
The biologist had to act fast. He stayed calm and grabbed the bear by the scruff of the neck.
The bear was having trouble keeping its head above water, but Adam never gave up.
Everyone held their breath as Adam dragged the nearly-400-pound bear twenty-five yards to land. 
After what seemed like an eternity, Adam made his way out of the water with the groggy bear.
He suffered only one scratch from the bear and a cut foot from the barnacles. 
nce they reached the shore, other team members came to help the exhausted man and bear.
The team was able to use a tractor bucket to transport the poor guy back to his home in Osceola National Forest.
He looks much happier on land than he did in the water!
This incredible man risked his life to save a dangerous animals when no one dared to act. He's not only a legendary human being, but also a hero to one lucky bear.                                                                             http://www.therealthingmin.webs.com

I want to hug this man. I wonder if he has read Aldo Leopold, who wrote beautifully about the Land Ethic,

 http://www.panojohnson.com/leopold-quotes.html

“We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then and have known ever since that there was something new to me in those eyes, something known only to her and to the mountain. I was young then and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters’ paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.” Thinking Like a Mountain, ASCA 130

“One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise.”

― Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
