Corey Hancock is a photographer that very much enjoys hiking around the Oregon trails. What he did not expect tho was to find a baby bear on the bridge of death when he was doing his regular workout.
“I thought about my own baby boy back home. The bear looked so much like an infant. Was I just going to stand there and watch it die in the rain? No… I needed to do something,” Corey shared.
He grabbed the bear and ran back to his car in fear a bear momma could be chasing him. He tried to perform CPR and he took one breath. He was struggling just to stay alive. So he took the baby bear to Turtle Ridge Wildlife Center near Salem, Oregon, where he’s now recovering from dehydration and starvation and is on his way to recovery.
Corey could have been fined with a huge amount of money or even face jail-time for taking the bear with him but thankfully, everything turned out great.
