A Rafting Guide Saved A Baby Bear That Was Stranded By A River

A group of guides in Tennessee used their raft to rescue a baby black bear on Thursday after the little cub became stranded on the side of a river. Guides with the USA Raft Company had spotted the five-month-old bear several days earlier struggling by the bank of the Nolichucky River in the Appalachians in eastenn Tennessee. So on Thursday guide Danny Allen rafted over towards the bear, which then desperately struggled into the raft. The 14.5-pound animal was taken to the Appalachian Bear Rescue group, which looks after a lot of orphaned cubs.
