"Brandon Poole of Long Creek said he and his family were driving in their truck when they spotted the box and decided to investigate.
`I thought it was little puppies in that little box, so I got closer to it, I noticed I heard squealing so I thought it was baby pigs. I got closer and picked one up. It was three baby bears," Poole said."
I don`t know if the person who placed the baby bears in the box by the road was trying to help, but he should have left them at an animal shelter or the police department.
Thank goodness Brandon Poole spotted the box, and didn`t leave the cubs to freeze to death at night. He took the cubs to the fire department, and they turned them over to a bear rescue center.
Poole was driving with his young daughters; he taught them an invaluable lesson about protecting wild life.
