AZUSA, California -- A mother bear tried desperately to save her young cub trapped in a dumpster.
She pounded, scratched and clawed at the top of the dumpster trying to get it open.
Her other cub was nearby and also helped out.
Finally, a wildlife officer spotted the scene and scared away the mother with his siren. While the mother ran off for a short while, the officer opened the lid.
The family was finally reunited and headed back to the woods.
