He Saw A Giant Bear In The Water. What He Did Next Is The Manliest Thing In History

There are some creatures that have just not been historically friendly with each other—bears and humans, for example, are two species you don’t see cuddling up to one another that often. But when push came to shove, one man didn’t let any fear of an animal he didn’t know very well get in the way of doing the right thing.

This big guy accidentally started wandering throughout a Florida community, and got the attention of the wrong people.

Scared of what the bear might do, authorities took action and decided to tranquilize the bear.

The bear, however, got incredibly spooked, and started running, scared, into the ocean as he was shot. The tranquilizer started taking effect, and the bear got dizzier and dizzier as he went deeper in the water.

Bystander Adam Warwick, who works with the Wildlife Commission, saw the danger, and knew this bear could drown if nothing was done.

He jumped into the water to the bear’s aid.

The bear was 400 lbs. and could have annihilated Warwick, but he kept pushing the animal to safety. “It was a spur of the moment decision,” Warwick said. “I had a lot of adrenaline pumping when I saw the bear in the water.”

Warwick brought the bear all of 25-yards from water to land.

He had a minor scratch and some barnacle battle wounds, but for the most part was unscathed.
