VIDEO: Northern WI deputy helps free bear cub

Posted:

Wascott (WQOW) - A bear got its paw stuck in a car door in Douglas County this weekend and the encounter was caught on video.

It all happened Sunday in Wascott, northwest of Hayward. The cub's mother and another cub were nearby, watching the incident unfold.

When a deputy arrived, the mama bear charged at the squad car.

The deputy didn't let that scare her away. She was eventually able to open the door and set the cub free. 

The Douglas County Deputy Sheriff's Association commented, "Apparently the trio have learned how to open the door and look for food. This isn't the first time they've done this. The door got shut on its paw."

The Douglas County Deputy Sheriff's Association shared the video on its Facebook page. The post said, it was "one mom helping another mom on Mother's Day."
