Though they have done it many times, three black baby bears in New Mexico, can't seem to learn that while getting into a dumpster is easy, climbing out can get a little tricky. Lucky for them and their mother, two local residents are kind enough to help them out by lending them their ladder - And it works each time!

The good samaritans, Shirley and Tom Shenk, said that when they heard animal crying noises from inside the nearby garbage dumpster a few weeks ago, they immediately knew it was the offspring of a local black bear who had figured out how to open the latch of the dumpster and was notorious for sneaking in, whenever she got a chance.

In order to help them, Shirley and her husband did what they have done twice before - Drove up to the area with their ladder and then, with the mother bear watching sneakily from inside the woods, lowered it inside the dumpster. The couple then parked a short distance away to ensure that the young animals got out safely. Sure enough, the three little bears scampered out quickly to the side, where the mother bear was waiting. Once they were all out, the family disappeared into the nearby woods happy, to be reunited! Maybe the bears have finally learnt their lesson and will not dare venture inside the dumpster again - If not, the Shenks are always there to help!
