A Baby Bear Climbed Into This Guy’s Raft, The Reason Why Is Heartbreaking.

Floating along the Nolichucky River near the border of Tennessee and North Carolina was a five-month-old bear cub who didn't have much of a chance. Seemingly abandoned by it's mother and in need of attention, the bear could have easily drowned.

Luckily, a rafter named Danny Allen spotted him. Instead of leaving the wild animal to it's own devices, Allen took it upon himself to rescue the bear - even though doing so was risky. Read more of the incredible story below.

Danny Allen is a rafting guide. He and his coworkers had seen the bear off and on for several days, and noticed there was no sign of it's mother.

"She was obviously malnourished," said Allen's boss. "My guides kept coming back and saying that they didn't know what to do."

Allen decided to row near the bear cub and try to assess the situation. Miraculously, when he did, the bear jumped right into his raft.

It was the first time Allen or any of the other rafting guides had seen anything like this. Clearly, this bear cub was in dire need of help.

The starving cub was taken to the Appalachian Bear Rescue for rehabilitation.
