Bears are impressive and majestic animals. It is not advisable to approach them. When a bear was seen in a residential area of Florida, authorities decided to evacuate the area to protect the residents.
For safety reasons, the vets tried to put the animal to sleep so they could catch him, The Telegraph explained.
However, when the tranquilizer dart began to take effect, the bear panicked and went into the sea.
The anesthetic began to take effect. The animal became weaker and weaker. He was in danger of drowning because he would soon pass out.
At this point, Adam Warwick, a biologist with the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission, decided to risk his life to save the poor bear from certain death.
Adam didn’t hesitate and dove in. It wasn’t easy to pull a 180 kg animal out of the water and keep him safe.
The bear could have hurt Adam, but the biologist didn’t give up. He was determined to get it to safety. He grabbed the bear and started swimming toward shore, keeping his head above water.
Fortunately, Adam escaped with only a few scratches. Eventually, the bear was pulled out of the water with the help of a tractor. And then taken to Osceola National Park.
The bear also came out of this tense situation unscathed and is now happy to be on dry land!
