According to the New York Daily News, this interesting incident occurred in New Mexico when three bear cubs climbed into a dumpster and got stuck inside. Luckily, Shirley and Tom Schenk were nearby with a ladder they “keep handy for these situations”. They then backed their pickup truck up to the inadvertent baby bear trap and tossed the ladder in. After pulling away, the three cubs used the kindly-provided escape tool to emerge from the trash bin. Watch the video below for all the action.
