Baby bear tries to rescue sibling from bin

A crying baby bear becomes stuck in a refuse bin - and its sibling tries to rescue it in a heartbreaking video.

The footage was shot by police in California, who used a ladder to help the cub break free.

Placer County Sheriff's Office received a call about the incident outside a motel in Kings Beach, California, and several deputies went to the young animal's aid.
