Shirley Schenk and her husband Tom heard bear cubs crying through the night a couple of weeks ago outside their New Mexico home. So as soon as there was enough light they came to the rescue, armed with a ladder and a pickup truck. The three cubs had crawled up and into a dumpster but couldn't get out. The Tom Schenk backed his pickup truck up to the dumpster so wife Shirley could drop a ladder into it. Moments after they pulled away -- and with mamma bear watching -- the cubs used the ladder to climb to the top of the dumpster and then drop to the ground.
