A Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources official captured video when he used a ladder to rescue a bear cub from an under-construction basement.
The department said Warden Supervisor Dave Walz's shift had just ended when he received a call from the Vilas County Sheriff's Office about a bear cub that had fallen into a newly-constructed open basement.
"While the cub's mother and siblings watched from afar, Walz, with help from the homeowner, used a ladder to help the cub escape from the basement and reunite with its family," the DNR said in an Instagram post.
The video shows the bear cub uttering a human-like shout as it climbs the ladder under Walz's encouragement.
