And, finally, they did:
The YouTube video is entitled Ruidoso Bear Rescue Mission, so we assume it occurred in Ruidoso, N.M., a village adjacent to the Lincoln National Forest.
Kbear0330 posted the video with this description:
Where, oh where, are my baby bears? Some baby bears got stuck in a dumpster over night. Mama bear sat by the dumpster all night listening to her cubs cry. This kept my aunt’s friends awake as well.
No doubt fearing another sleepless night, the good people of Ruidoso did the neighborly thing, helping the cubs climb out of the trash bin by way of ladder. They then wandered off with momma bear back into the woods.
One question remains unanswered, though. How did the bear cubs get into the dumpster in the first place?
