Bears have an incredible sense of smell, and when they’re hungry bears will go to some pretty crazy extremes to get their paws on a snack. Bears are also very intelligent, so once they learn that humans provide a seemingly endless supply of snacks, by way of garbage or half-eaten candy bars that get left behind, they will search out residential areas to find something tasty to eat.

In this particular story, a 400-pound black bear set out to follow his nose and wandered all the way from his home in Osceola National Forest to a residential area in Alligator Point, Florida. When he was discovered shuffling through one of the residents garbage, wildlife authorities set out to capture and return the bear back to his forest home…this is when things started to go horribly wrong.

Once the bear was located authorities attempted to sedate the bear–as a 400-pound, claw-weilding black bear is not exactly the most cooperative animal–this would be the safest way they could transport him back to his home. But the bear had other plans…

After being hit with a tranquilizer dart, the bear took off towards the ocean and hopped into the water.

As he was swimming out into the Gulf, the tranquilizers began to kick in and he became drowsy and started to drown.

Luckily, Adam Warwick, a biologist with the Wildlife Commission was nearby…

Without even flinching at the size and strength of the bear, Warwick grabbed a hold of the floundering animal.

The bear was beginning to lose feeling in his legs and struggled to crawl onto Warwick to stay afloat.

Knowing he would need to act quickly and stay as calm as possible, Warwick began to drag the bear to shore.

 The bear was having trouble keeping his head above the water, losing more and more mobility.

But the brave biologist just kept swimming, despite the growing weight of the 400-pound bear.

Warwick managed to tow the bear the entire 25 yards to land.

Finally on shore, the groggy bear and exhausted Warwick were hoisted onto land.

The bear weighed too much for the crew to handle, so they used a tractor bucket to move the sedated bear.

Warwick made sure the sleepy bear made it safely onto the transport vehicle. Surely, if the bear hadn’t been so groggy he would have given Warwick a big bear hug.

Back at Osceola National Forest, the bear is looking MUCH happier…it’s going to be a long time before this guy goes rummaging through human garbage again!

I have be looking for solution,I fall into the hands of fake spell caster,they rough me off and took my money without help.I have cried,I have weep”and tears runs out of eyes.

I can’t really help thinking about it I have tried to see what I can do, I manage to provide him some materials and he help me with the rest,after casting the spell, 12hrs later he came with rose on his hand and I was even about going out,i saw him in front of my door when he sees me he knee and said he is dying I should forgive him and accept him back he was crying,I can’t wait to let him finish I quickly crab him and kiss him, just then” he said he is restless without me, just as the prophet has said he will be. He brought out a ring and put it on my hand. Our wedding day was scheduled,1week after we got married. today makes it 2weeks and we are living happily I don’t know how to praise him enough, he has done me a thing I can never forget.

After 9 years in marriage with my hubby with 3 kids, my husband started going out with other ladies and showed me cold love, on several occasions he threatens to divorce me if I dare question him about his affair with other ladies, I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet Dr. Adoda who help people with the relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a spell and within 24hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with ladies and he his with me for good and for real. Contact this great spell caster for your relationship or marriage problem at [email protected] Goodluck

TESTIMONY
My name is Hidago Daniel. I made a promise to tell others the wonderful works of he who brought my ex girlfriend back to me. He is doctor KEN who is a spell doctor and was able to bring back my ex. My ex left me the very day she met her friend in my place, of which, unknowingly to her, I had nothing to do with her. She grew furious at the very sight of her friend and I was confused if she was initially mad with her. Days into weeks and weeks into months, my ex girlfriend did not speak a word to me as she went away. What was I to do? That was how i contacted doctor KEN on the internet who after some procedures and progress, brought back my ex. Words are not enough to express my feelings and what doctor KEN has done for me. He really lifted a heavy load off my chest. To all those out there, please, don\'t think your situation is too primitive or too hard and complicated for anyone to understand. Contact doctor KEN and find joy once again, contact him on [email protected] also talk to him on +1[903] 847 0267
