ASHEVILLE, NC (WSPA) – A technician from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission rescued a bear cub whose paw had become stuck in a tree.

According to the group Help Asheville Bears, they received a call just before 3:30pm Wednesday about a cub stuck in a tree.

The group said the bear’s rear paw had become stuck between the tree trunk and a branch. One of the cub’s siblings had also stayed with it in the tree.
