The bear wandered into the yard of a residential building in California, or rather in Florida. The owners decided to call the police to drive the beast away, but he did not want to leave. And then the police decided to shoot the bear with a dart containing a tranquilizer.
As soon as the substance began to gradually act, the beast ran in a panic towards the ocean, and then passed out during the swim. As it turned out, this was not the best solution. The farther the animal swam, the stronger the substance acted, until it began to fall asleep and drown in doing so.
And then a man named Adam Warwick, a biologist, decided to act without delay and rushed into the ocean to save the animal.
Eyewitnesses were shocked by what was happening and began to film it on camera. Adam later shared that when he saw the animal drowning, his adrenaline rose in his blood and he did not even think that the animal was large and scared, so he could easily deal with him.
When he swam up, the bear was already coming to his senses, but he could not stay afloat, his paws refused. Adam reacted instantly, grabbing him by the neck and holding the animal’s head above the water while swimming. It was not easy, but the man did not give up.
Everyone watched with bated breath as the man took the bear, which weighed two centners, to land and continued to hold it, since the effect of the substance and the state of shock had not yet completely passed. The biologist was almost unharmed, except for a couple of scratches from bear paws and a damaged leg shell.
