Brave Man Saving Drowning 400-lb Black Bear Is Possibly One Of The Greatest Rescue Stories Ever

Bears can be very scary animals. They are extremely large, their claws and teeth are sharp, and they are a lot faster than you think they would be for their size. Black bears can get up to 6 feet tall and can weigh anywhere between 200-600 pounds. That’s a pretty large animal. Black bears are often seen in the United States, but when this bear was seen in Florida recently, it had all of the residents worried.

Once the bear was on land, the Osceola National Forest team used a tractor bucket to transfer the bear back to the forest.

Adam is definitely the manliest man ever. He didn’t hesitate once to save a 400 pound bear that could have easily had him for lunch. Instead, he jumped into the large ocean, swam out to the bear, then swam back to the shore with the bear, all to save its life. What a hero!
