First responders coaxed a stranded bear cub into a lake so its mom could ferry the baby to safety during a water rescue in South Lake Tahoe, California, on May 3, officials said.South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue said the “determined” mother bear, known locally as Black Betty, took her three cubs out for a swim. But there was a complication when one cub “was unable to make it into the water.”This video shows the cub clinging to a railing as South Lake Tahoe first responders prod the cub into the water as its mother looks on from the water below.Once the cub drops into the lake, it climbs onto its mom’s back as she carries it to dry land. Officials said the mother bear swam back and forth, “nearly to exhaustion,” while bringing each of her cubs ashore.“The mother bear was determined to save all three of her cubs herself and ensure that they see tomorrow by continually swimming each one to safety!” the South Lake Tahoe Fire Fighters Association said on Facebook.

    I've actually seen this happen on a remote lake in Canada... Sort of cool the way the mother bear looks after its young so much...

    Always wonderful to see a successful rescue over roadkill cleanup.

    last summer a stray cat that was hanging around brought four kittens up out of the woods one at a time and dropped them on my porch.. as soon as they started walking it was time to bring them to the food.. finally warm enough today to let them out for the first time.. they were hopping sideways and running and their tails were all puffed up.. they are back in now and tired out and sleeping..

    If the momma bear had come up on the walkway, the officers would have gone for a swim along with the camera man...
