Brave Man Saves 400-Pound Bear From Drowning (GALLERY)

(WILDLIFE/ANIMAL PICTURES) In this daring rescue story, Adam Warwick, a biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), saves a nearly 400-pound black bear from drowning. The bear had wandered far away from his home in the Osceola National Forest, and was seen roaming around a residential neighborhood in search of food. Wildlife officials shot him with a tranquilizer dart in an attempt to safely return him to the wild, but unfortunately the bear bolted into the Gulf of Mexico before the drugs took effect. At that point, the brave biologist jumped into the water to save the bear from drowning. Watch what happens next in the photo gallery below. -- Global Animal
