SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KABC) -- Sometimes, even the bears need help getting out of their own mess.
Deputies in Lake Tahoe arrived on scene to find a mama bear and her cub trying to open a dumpster, where her other bear cub was apparently trapped.
The bears tried, but could not open the dumpster. That's when officers brought a ladder, propped it up inside the dumpster.
The next thing you know, out pops this adorable bear cub!
The bear family was reunited and ran off to safety.
