Watch as a fierce momma bear in southern California frantically tries to free her cub after it got trapped inside a garbage dumpster.
The rescue attempt happened in a forest parking lot in azusa.
The mother bear was not giving up on figuring out a way to open the lid to get one of her babies out.
Another of her cubs was there too for moral support.
Fish and wildlife officials came to the rescue and scared mom and her cub away long enough to lift the lid so the trapped cub could climb out.
After being stuck inside for about 20 minutes, the cub did find its way to freedom with some trash still attached to one ear.
