Volunteer firefighter Brandon Poole was driving down the thruway in South Carolina when he saw a box of puppies on the side of the road. But they weren't puppies. As he approached he heard the squealing that sounded just like baby pigs. They weren’t pigs either.

Poole was surprised to find three bear cubs inside of a box on the side of the road.

Poole brought them back to his fire station, scared that they were too young to be alone in the cold and open and called the state’s Department of Natural Resources. The DNR reported that the bear cubs were not even five weeks old.

“DNR examined the young bears but were unable to find their mother when they received the rescue call. So two of the cubs were sent to the Appalachian Bear Rescue (ABR) in Townsend, Tennessee, and one was sent to Charles Towne Landing State Park in Charleston, South Carolina, where they will stay until they’re ready to be returned to the wild,” according to Yahoo.

The cubs have been named “Bennie” and “Jerry” and are doing very well.

Who would leave bears on the side of the road like that? Where do you even find baby bears like that to put them in a box? Either way, they are safe and, man, they are cute as can be. Check out the video below. Poole says, “It felt good, I'm kind of trained to save lives and help, so it felt real good to me.”
