When a huge black bear wandered into a residential area in Alligator Point, Florida, wildlife officers knew they had to trap and remove him from the neighborhood. But after they hit the bear with a tranquilizer, things started going horribly wrong, according to News.Distractify.com.
As he swam further and further out into the Gulf, he became drowsy and started to drown. That's when Adam Warwick, a biologist with the Wildlife Commission, knew he had to act.
"It was a spur of the moment decision. I had a lot of adrenaline pumping when I saw the bear in the water." He forgot that the 7 foot beast could tear him apart with his claws. The bear tried lunging at Adam to climb on top of him and stay afloat, but he was losing the ability to move his legs. The biologist had to act fast, News.Distractify.com reports.
