A very courageous man just saved the life of this bear!

This resident Black Bear had begun to get a little to close to urban areas in Florida, America. So authorities decided to take action by darting the bear.

Once the bear was darted it became extremely confused and ran toward the sea. He walked deeper and deeper in, all while getting very drowsy.

Adam rode with the sedated bear the whole way to his new home among the forest.

The bear now lives happily within nature, away from people and definitely far away from the sea.
