Mummy bear rescues baby bear

A bear has been captured on video opening the door of a garage to free her trapped cub.

Nearly 150,000 people have watched the clip, filmed by a US home-owner, on YouTube.

It starts with the bear cub making its way across a beam inside the garage, while a dog barks in the background.

As the camera swivels, the cub's mother opens the garage door and holds it open, with her head briefly visible above a parked car.

The cub, now able to see his escape route, makes his way down a ladder before seemingly exiting.

The person who filmed the incident insisted that they did not do anything to help the mother bear open the garage door.

"I couldn't exactly go outside and let her into the garage. I could have been dinner. As you can see she opened garage door herself," the video uploader said.
