They’re big, they’re hairy, and this one was over 375 pounds, but that didn’t stop Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Biologist, Adam Warwick, from diving in after a drowning black bear.

After the large bear had been spotted in a residential area – most likely looking for food, it had been shot by a tranquilizer dart. But before it could be sedated on land, it jumped into the Gulf of Mexico.

Not wanting to let the bear drown, Warwick stripped off his shirt and dove in the waters after it.

 

Rescuing a 375 lbs Male Black Bear

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist Adam Warwick just couldn’t let the bear drown, so he took off his shirt and dove after it. The 375 lbs black bear had been spotted in a residential area, obviously looking for food, and was shot with a tranquilizer dart. Unfortunately, before it went under, it jumped in the water of the Gulf of Mexico. More photos and a video below.

On this photo you can see the tranquilizer dart.

“After watching the dramatic rescue effort unfold, local resident Thad Brett brought his digger to the beachfront to carry the bear away.”
