Every spring, baby animals are born, and by the time summer rolls around, they are officially in their toddler stages.

We all know what that means — they spend all their time getting into trouble and ending up in sticky situations, like this baby elephant who slid down a hill.

Each summer, bear cubs seem to get themselves into quite precarious situations — like these two who climbed up onto a woman’s porch to eat from her hummingbird feeder.

Unfortunately, these baby bears sometimes get stuck in places where they can’t save themselves. If their mothers can’t help them, it’s often time for humans to step in and lend a hand.

When a little bear cub in Ringwood, New Jersey, got stuck in some batting cage netting, a detective from the Ringwood Police Department knew he could help.

While many people would be afraid to approach a bear — even a cub — this detective walked over to the bear fearlessly and pulled out a knife.

He quickly started slicing some holes in the net, then rushed to the other side of the bear cub. He grabbed onto the netting and started pulling on it to release the little guy.

Eventually, the bear cub understood he was free and he dashed off into the woods, safe and sound!

If you love baby animals, please make sure to take down sports nets when they’re not in use, and SHARE this article with your friends!
