In Jefferson County, Colorado, deputies went far and beyond their everyday duties of helping citizens on Friday – that is if a family of bear cubs aren’t considered adorable and worthy of human interaction and rescue if needed.
Earlier in the week, a concerned citizen called the Jefferson County deputies who said three little bear cubs were trapped in a commercial dumpster and their mom, who was so concerned and worried, had no intention of letting anyone near her precious, crying babies.
So what is a deputy to do? Of course, they distracted mom and were ultimately able to flip the dumpster over. Two of the three babies crawled out, but the third – nicknamed “Sweet Pea” needed a little more assurance and confidence to get to safety.
Check out the video:
Just before midnight one day this past week, our Mountains deputies received a call about some bear cubs that had fallen into a commercial dumpster and couldn’t get out. The caller reported that when they approached the dumpster, the angry mom was guarding her babies and wouldn’t let anyone near. When deputies arrived, they heard the cubs’ unmistakable cries from the dumpster, which was closed and had a metal fence on all sides. Deputies worked together to keep an eye on mom while safely flipping open the dumpster lids. Two cubs immediately scrambled out while a third, affectionately referred to as sweet pea in the video, needed a little extra help to rejoin the family.
