So. Car. worker finds bear cubs in box story image
LONG CREEK, S.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A volunteer firefighter in South Carolina learned he's not only trained to save human lives, but also the furry kind.

The man and his family found a box on the side of the road while out for a drive, and heard squealing from the inside.

Thinking there were puppies inside, he opened the box and found three baby bears.

He put them straight into his truck and called the game warden.

His daughters pleaded to keep them, but he handed them over to professionals, where they are now getting all the attention and help they need.
