In today's squee-worthy news, a New Mexico couple had to come to the rescue of three black bear cubs when their dumpster diving mama got them in a bit of a jam. The couple, Tom and Shirley Schenk, heard baby bear cries (aw!) throughout the night and subsequently discovered the trapped cubs. However, the couple are no strangers to such events --they had previously performed an identical rescue.
Shirley told ABC news, "They know how to open the latch to the dumpster. The mother is notorious in the neighborhood." She added, "I was not scared. I had my husband driving and I knew we'd drop it and go. I would have never done that on foot." According to the couple the bears frequent the neighborhood and are "rarely aggressive."
The confused mama bear can be seen in the background of the video unsure of what was going on as the couple quickly backs a truck toward the dumpster and effortlessly drops in a ladder --like clockwork. The cubs immediately start to climb out and the reunited family trots away.
