Kind Fisherman Saves Two Wild Brown Bear Cubs Were Saved from Drowning in A Russian Lake
Kindness still does exist in the world, and a beautiful example of this is when a heartwarming video clip emerged on the internet in 2017. The video recorded an incident when a fisherman rescued two brown bear cubs from drowning in Lake Vygozero in the Karelia region of Russia. What were two bear cubs even doing in the middle of the lake, separated from their mother? Let’s find out what happened.
10 Fishermen in the Russian region of Karelia took two little bears on his boat from Lake Vygozero
When a fisherman was showing tourists around Lake Vygozero in the Karelia region of Russia, they spotted two unusual animals in the middle of the lake. Upon getting closer to the animals, everyone aboard was surprised to see that two brown bear cubs were desperately trying to stay afloat and swim to safety.
9 The two wild brown bear cubs had lost their mother while crossing the lake
The video from 2017 shows that the wild animals lost their mother when she thought they could swim better than they could. Ruslan Lukanin from Moscow said, “They had swum across the lake with their mother. But she overestimated her strength and swam away. The cubs began to sink. We picked them up and dragged them to the island to which their mother had swum. It was dangerous, of course. But they are living creatures. We couldn’t just look the other way.”
8 The bears were exhausted and lost since they didn’t know which way their Mom went
Being out swimming in the lake’s cold waters for so long had completely drained the little cubs of their energy. The cubs were exhausted and were literally going under. They would have died if the fisherman and the tourists hadn’t acted quickly. One of the bears’ eyes and face showed that he was terrified and desperate. He knew instinctively that only the fishermen could help him.
