Police officer rescues bear trapped in dumpster

A bear was rescued from a dumpster by Tahoe deputies! This bear found himself trapped in a dumpster in Northstar. Sgt. Nevins brought his trusty step-ladder from the office again, but the ladder was not for the bear this time …

We were able to get “Bubs” out of the dumpster. He was shooed off and left, but not before giving Nevins the hairy eyeball.
