JeffreyJ bear cubs stuck in a tree like Winnie the Pooh



For Ipad users:


Two bear cubs had to be rescued after they became stuck in a hollow tree.

The rescue, in Polk County, Wisconsin, started Saturday when a local resident heard strange noises from the tree and ended a day later, after the involvement of three different agencies.

The rescue began Sunday when the resident saw a snout sticking out of a hole in the tree's trunk and called the Polk County Sheriff’s Department for help.

The sheriff’s department contacted the state’s Department of Natural Resources (DN, which sent two wardens to the scene.

When the two wardens arrived with a local wildlife rehabilitation expert, they discovered that it was not just one but two bear cubs stuck in the tree.

The wardens believe the bears climbed into the tree through the hole and then became stuck when tree debris fell on them, a DNR spokeswoman told ABC News.

The wardens decided they would need to saw around the bears to free them and called in the Milltown Fire Department to help, according to DNR.

“We cut a hole in the tree and then we all backed off and waited,” Warden Phil Dorn said in a report released Thursday by DNR.

The cubs, who had some tree shavings on their heads from the sawing, quickly scampered out of the tree and into the woods.
