A 375 lb (170 kg) bear was spotted searching for food and shot with a tranquilizer dart. Sadly, things didn't go so well, and the bear jumped towards the water. Biologist Adam Warwick from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission didn't hesitate for action. If the bear was left in the oceans, he knew it would drown.
Adam immediately jumped into the water to save it. Of course, the fact that the bear might have been angry because it was shot did not cross his mind.
Adam in action. Look at that grip!
Adam saved the day by rescuing this bear. The amazing part? He only suffered a few minor cuts and scratches from the claws and barnacles. The bear was transported via a tractor back to Osceola National Forest.
