What would you do if one day you found a huge bear behind your back? It would seem that this is impossible, but here is a story that will once again prove that maternal love is the most fearless and strong, even among the most predatory and harsh animals.
This story happened in a small Russian village. The man once again prepared to go for prey, but suddenly he heard strange sounds coming from the yard. Looking out the window, the hunter was taken aback: he could not even think of such prey right in his yard.
A huge bear stood on its hind legs and roared terribly. The man grabbed a gun, threw open the window, and aimed it at the animal. Fortunately, an experienced trapper understood the habits of animals. It’s just that a bear would never come to a man’s house. It was clear that the bear needed something. But how to understand what exactly?
Forgetting about the legs buckled with fear, the man lowered his gun. And here a real miracle happened: the bear, apparently, felt that the man understood her, turned around, and slowly, as if beckoning, led him into the forest. The man left the house and followed the animal. About what only on the road did not think! I have seen a lot in my life, but this happened for the first time.
The path along which the beast and the hunter walked led to the lake. From his own experience, the man knew that many she-bears with their cubs on their backs swim across the reservoirs. Most likely there was a problem. Perhaps her kids capsized into the water, and they simply did not have enough strength to swim ashore. But it was not there! It turned out to be much worse.
Approaching the lake, the man noticed a baby in the water near the shore, entangled in fishing nets. The network slowly went underwater, and the bear cub, with its last strength, grabbed air and disappeared underwater. The man rushed with lightning speed to save the life of a drowning bear cub.
Pulling the net ashore, he cut it with a knife and freed the baby. The beast looked very weak and exhausted. It is not known how long he floundered there since his mother came to the man for help.
All this time, the bear stood aside, closely watching what was happening, as if she was afraid to frighten the savior with her approach. Only after her baby was on land, she began to move.
This incident had a profound effect on the man. Of course, he knew that bears are very smart animals, but he could not even imagine what they were ready for. After all, it was worth the hunter to make a different decision, and he would simply shoot the mother of the baby. Fortunately, he believed the bear, who trusted him with her life. And it was the wisest decision.
Such a story is a very rare case in the wild. But all this speaks of boundless maternal love for her cub, when even the strongest predators ask for help, endangering their own lives.
Bears are even mentioned in the Bible, proverbs are made up of their maternal love. And in the Russian outback to this day they tell a unique case that once and for all changed the life of a hunter and gave new life to a small creature of the wild.
