Bear Cub Rescued From Trash Bin in Azusa
Fish and Wildlife officials rescued a baby bear that got stuck inside a trash bin Sunday night in a forest parking lot in Azusa.
Azusa police received a call around 10:30 p.m. about a mother bear and a cub trying to get another cub out of a dumpster.
Video shows the two bears climbing on the trash bin and pawing at it.
Police passed the call on to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Fish and Wildlife officials used lights and sirens to scare the bears away long enough to open the lid and free the cub.
The baby bear climbed out of the bin with some trash still stuck to its head.
The cub was trapped for about an hour and twenty minutes before being reunited with its family.
