Every now and again you hear a story which really warms your heart and restores your faith in humanity. And we’ve such a story for you here today. It’s the tale of a man who saw a big scary animal in danger, but thought nothing of his own safety as he risked his life to help save the predator’s life.
The man was Adam Warwick and the animal was a black bear…
According to bystanders and onlookers, the Florida bear was getting very close to urban areas, just strolling around – causing some concern. After all, we know how scary bears can be! Authorities were left with little other choice than to sedate the bear with a tranquilizer dart.
Drowsy and confused, the black bear wandered into the water. It was now in terrible danger. When it passed out, there was a good chance it might drown.
As people gasped and panicked, witness Adam Warwick jumped into action. He stripped down and swim out to the bear who was beginning to flag and reach critical danger.
The 180kg bear was far too heavy for Adam to swim back with, so a quick-thinking local jumped into his little boat and rushed out to help collect Adam and his hairy new pal.
With Adam leading the project, everyone chipped in to ensure that the bear was brought back ashore safe and well.
The bear woke up, a little woozy. Authorities – along with the bear’s hero rescuer – headed to the local woods to release the bear back into its home environment.
The lost fella is now no longer lost and living happily ever after!
Well done, Adam! More people like you please…
