TRUCKEE, CA (KAIT) - Police in California helped reunite a mother bear with her cub after it got stuck in a dumpster.

The mama bear and her cub were rummaging through a dumpster when the lid fell, trapping the baby inside.

People who saw the mom trying to free the baby bear called the police.

In a video shared by the Truckee, California police, an officer is seen pulling the dumpster lid up.

The cub then immediately darts out of the container and scrambled up a wall of rocks to his waiting mother.

Police also used the video to remind people to lock their garbage containers.
