The fishermen waited for the mother bear to appear but after some time they still hadn’t seen her. Still, the fishermen knew it was best to leave the cubs to try and find her, even though they had grown fond of the cubs in this short time.
The little cubs were tired and lacked in energy, so the fishermen carefully picked them up and brought them onto dry land. They thought this was the safest way to reunite the cubs with their mother.
Finding the Right Place
The fishermen started to look for the ideal location to reunite the mother bear with her cubs. They decided it would be best to look on the island which the mother bear had swum towards as even though at the moment she had left the cubs to swim for themselves, the fishermen were confident she would still want to be with her cubs.
After searching, the fishermen identified the last location where they had sighted the mother bear. But, how long would it take for the mother bear to be reunited with her cubs? and what would she do when she saw them again?
Will She Attack?
As the fishermen approached the shore, there was no sign of the mother bear, there was much anticipation on the boat, both among the fishermen as well as the cubs.
The fishermen on board had no idea how the mother bear would react. There was a real chance she could attack the fishermen, but they had already decided the right thing to do was to reunite the cubs with their mother, even if this put the whole crew in danger.
Close to the Cubs
Having safely returned the cubs to dry land, the fishermen could reflect on the amazing events of that day. Since it had all been filmed by one of the fishermen, they were able to recount the entire thing in all of its beauty.
The fishermen had proof that this had happened and they were very proud of their achievements that day. They had become close to the bear cubs, which was something that would stay with them forever.
Inspiration for Everyone
This story is touching and inspirational. The fishermen literally risked life and limb to rescue these two cubs who could have savagely attacked them if they thought they may have been in danger.
It was not only the cubs who were in danger but the fishermen too as they had no idea how the cubs would react upon rescuing them. It was a gamble on the part of the fishermen, but they did what they thought was right for the well being of the cubs. This is a fantastic story of humans risking their lives to save animals. In this story, we saw a group of fishermen rescues two drowning bear cubs, but this is not the only example of exemplary human behavior. There have been cases of one-man swimming to save a 400-pound bear stuck in the ocean, and other people risking everything to rescue a dog from a canal. These are special people who you can read more about here.
