Living in Minnesota we are used to seeing wild animals in some form or another, especially in rural areas. Thankfully for one large black bear, some fisherman helped save his life.

The large bear somehow ended up miles from shore in the water on Lake Mille Lacs, and became very tired and disoriented. A fishing charter spotted him and decided they needed to try to lure him back to shore.

Check out the video below to see and hear more about this amazing story of some modern day hero's, who spent hours in the rain determined to help this bear.
