Wildlife Biologist Saves Bear Twice His Size

Man Saves Bear

A Florida wildlife biologist risked drowning or being mauled to deathin order to save a bear. Wildlife officers were called to catch a black bear hiding under a person house in Franklin County. When the officers arrived the bear began to run toward a populated area. One of the officers shot the bear with a tranquilizer dart. The bear ended up in the Gulf of Mexico near Alligator Point. Thats when one of the wildlife officers dove in after the 65, 375 lbs black bear. Wildlife Biologist Adam Warwick said the bear dozed off when he got to it, so his goal was to keep its head above water so the animal wouldnt drown.

I knew I couldnt live with myself if I was going to let that bear drown. I would think about it for the rest of my life, said Warwick.

Warwick was able to get the bear close enough to shore for other officers to help pull the bear to dry land.
